Saturday was a good day. I got to explore the Salton Sea and environs. As many of you might know, the past 18 months have been hard. First, my son was murdered, and then I was diagnosed with cancer. Last November, I had a kidney and tumor removed. Prior to that time, I was leading a photowalk Meet-Up, in Southern California. I had to give that up, but was fortunate in that an excellent photographer was able to take over and keep it going, but I had lost my desire to lead meetups.
This week, I noticed that a local group was going to the Salton Sea. I had wanted to visit the area, but never made the time — it is about a three hours drive from here. The group is hosted my Rick Rosen, who has years of experience, not only as a photographer, but as a workshop leader, so I thought it might be fun – and I could avoid six hours driving, alone.
Our first stop was at Bombay Beach. After the Salton Sea, we visited Salvation Mountain and East Jesus, in the Slab City area. I’ll post a few photos from those locations in subsequent posts.
In a few days, I’ll post images from Salvation Mountain and East Jesus.
