the desert

Day trip to the Salton Sea and Salvation Mountain

Sightings and Events (if memory serves me correct from this trip taken a couple weeks ago):
wind farms and date trees on the way there, a really tan guy in a speedo (corvette guy) photographing himself, flocks of giant pelican-like birds, ice cream truck (nothing beats a strawberry shortcake ice cream in the warm desert sun), bone/barnacle/specimen collecting, plenty of tilapia carcasses on the shores (and people fishing for them too), Salvation Mountain (that's all made out of bales of hay, tires, and TONS of paint!) and getting a tour from Leonard Knight, half-buried homes and trailers, and a beautiful salt crystallized mechanical crane...
