In the days of the pandemic, Social Distancing by way of “Desert Distancing” comes easy for those of us in the hinterlands of the Mojave. Eastern California is largely wide open spaces that are inhospitable to the conventions of normal people. I am always for taking the road less traveled. Recently I spent a few days in the Mojave outback of Saline Valley, and enjoyed solitude, and an extraordinary bloom.
Please enjoy a few shots along the way. I have decided to let this ‘blog’ be more of a pictorial, and will let the captions convey the story. Not much of a story; just a great opportunity to get out and stretch.
While we have been filling our days in isolation, we have also taken the opportunity to explore the neighboring Panamint Valley.
