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.
