Sublime To Ridiculous

From the beauty and middle-class charm of Santa Barbara I moved through several distinct worlds to a cheap motel in Victorville. The photo I really wanted to get was of this martian landscape of bare rocks with a freeway running right through the middle of it. The freeway was a parking lot because there were three accidents in a half mile distance. I would have pulled over and taken the photo for you but there was no such option.

Five pound bags of oranges for $1. Strange landscapes with odd habitations dotting the surface. Climbing inland so it was not getting warmer. I think I'm heading for Lake Havasu City but who knows? Sometimes I just punch in a town to the GPS and tell it to avoid freeways.

Photo near Palmdale CA.


  • Ahhh... Joshua Trees. A strange godly accident... no water needed. Hope your travels are magnificent, my friend. Thanks for updating frequently. Be well, and take good care of yourself
