Just a small grouping of shots taken around the little town of Borrego Springs. It's a small place in the middle of a huge desert. Lot's of snow birds come to this area in the winter, but in the summer it is deadly hot and only fools and people who really want to be there are around. It's one of our favorite places and strangely enough one of the BEST little restaurants you'll ever eat at is there.
This doesn't really keep to the theme, but hey, an artistic photo every now and then, never hurt anyone, right? Actually, this shot was taken just a little ways out of town, so it kinda qualifies.
A double decker bus! I guess that if the London Bridge can now be found in the desert several hundred miles from here, why not an English double decker bus here?
Of course this (and every other) American desert is littered with awesome old pickup truck bones. Borrego Springs is no exception. This little beauty is worth some money.
Don't ask me! I only take the photos! I do know that it's either a 1949 or 1950 "shoebox" Ford. i guess it's been sitting there for a while. That grill and front bumper are worth quite a bit of money. Of course these days reproductions are readily available, but purist restorers want original parts like this.
No clue! I do know that about 50 years ago I saw a car fall off of a lift in the service bay to the right. It's been remodeled since then, but it's the same place. I guess I have been coming to the desert for along time.
One of the sculptures I didn't post before. I liked it because I got out of our jeep to take a photo of this one.
More spines per square inch than any other cactus in the desert.

Just because it was barren and pretty.
