On the Road – Part 4 – the Salton Sea

Early this morning I headed east, from Los Angeles, towards the desert. I had two destinations planned:

the Salton Sea
Joshua Tree

My first stop was at the Salton Sea, the sand is crunchy and there are loads of abandoned buildings, definitely an interesting place to explore if you’re ever in southern California. I was kind of on a schedule so I didn’t spend a lot of time there, however I did manage a few images…

I did make my way to Joshua Tree National Park, but only had about an hour of light. I have a few images, but I’m hoping to get some more tomorrow, before I head north to Vegas. So look for some images from Joshua Tree soon!

On The Road – Part 3 – Santa Monica

Today I spent a portion of the day at the Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach. I’ve only been to L.A. once before and hadn’t made it to the pier on that trip, so I thought, perhaps, it would be a fun thing to do. Most of the photos I took today were from that area…

Tomorrow, I head to the Salton Sea and Joshua tree.

On the Road – Part 2 – San Francisco

Today, I got to explore parts of San Francisco. I’ve really never been here before, I’d driven through, briefly a few years ago, but today, was a treat. A good friend is a San Fran native, who, when I mentioned I’d be embarking on this trip, was stoked to show me around his hood.

I knew, with him leading the tour I’d get to see some things off the beaten path, andI truly did.

I’m just doing a quick post of a few faves from one of the spots we checked out, the ruins of the Sutro Baths.

Entry to a small cave, where you can hear waves crashing against the sides and roof, Alex mentioned that it does flood when the tide rolls in…
