Farewell Desert: The Final Frontier
I’m back to the daily grind after a weekend filled with tissues, cough drops and classic movie marathons. Yep, I finally caught my yearly winter cold. While I pass the next few hours swaddled in my Snuggie, personal heater ablaze, join me as I muse over better days. Vacation days.
We’ll have to backpedal a bit here, because I’ve been blogging about my New Years weekend in the desert for over a week now, and as much as I should get on with 2011 adventures…there’s a few more mentionables that I simply can’t forget.
With the sun glowing on the horizon of the Salton Sea, we left behind the colors of Salvation Mountain for another dirt road just a few miles away in Calipatria. Besides farmland, a prison, and lack of a proper paving company, this “seaside” community hosts an odd geological attraction bubbling up in an empty dirt lot surrounded by nothingness. Geothermal mudpots.
