Our Location: Truckhaven BLM, Salton City, CA
Another twofer, two posts in one today, or maybe it's three. I'm losing track.
Throughout this post you will see photos of the sun/shade on this mountain. Watch how different the mountain looks each time.
A walk from a few days ago netted me the photos for tonight's post. I walked back into the badlands and through a couple of washes, up some hills, down some hills, you know, my usual stuff. It ended up being just over 3 miles return. It just seemed much longer.
Yesterday (Jan 17) Riley and I headed back to Janet's for another visit. The three of us had dinner together, while Dennis was flying to Calgary for the next day or two. Much nicer weather here than there is there. Yeah us.
That is the Salton Sea you can see way over there with the Chocolate Mountains on the other side.
Lots of ways to go if you can get into them.
Today Riley and I went to Coachella, our first visit to the actual town. Some groceries, some fuel, and back to Salton City for some water and to drop some garbage. After that it was home by 2 pm and we spent the rest of the time sitting outside. Doug & Yuma from Miss Adventure Travels dropped by for a while to chat about the day and future plans. I chatted with my friend Linda and my dad this afternoon as well. Snow, warm, snow, lots of blowing stuff. You know the way it is back there either from personal experience or from hearing about it from others. So I won't bore you with any more details.
No shadows on the mountain at this moment.
You all know that some day I'd like to follow that path to see where it goes.
Lots of rigs in the area, more off roaders around. I think this may be a long weekend here and folks are taking advantage of the extra day to enjoy the area. Lots of fun watching them and I think they're having a lot of fun scampering on past. They look pretty happy!
A last shot of the mountain for this post.
So that's how we've been spending the last few days. I hope you enjoy the photos.
Until next time.. take care, be safe,
