Salton Sea photo road trip. We'll stop at North Shore, Bombay Beach, the mudpots, the best Mexican food both outside and INSIDE Mexico, Slab City and Salvation Mountain. Leonard no longer live at Salvation Mountain, but he has lots of disciples that will hopefully keep his work of beauty and love going. (For those who don't know the story of Leonard and Salvation Mountain, this alone may be a reason to join and hear about it.)
Location #1: At 6:30 we'll leave from the Fullerton Park-n-Ride, where the 5, 91, Orangethorpe & Magnolia come together. This carpool group should go directly to the meeting place in Mecca.
Location #2: At 7:00 leave the North Main Park-n-Ride located off the 91 at N. Main. The park and ride is located next to the 91 freeway. This is NOT the Metrolink parking structure. This group will need to organize themselves into vehicles. This group should go directly to the meeting place in Mecca.
Meeting Place in Mecca: At 8:15 - 8:30 we'll meet at the ARCO gas station (includes a Starbucks and Subway) for a pit stop. The gas station is located at [masked]th Ave, Mecca, CA 92254. From the I10 East, exit CA-86 to Browley/El Centro. Follow CA-86 about 12 miles, turn left onto 66th Ave (also known as CA-195). The gas station is on the left. We will leave this location at approximately 8:30.
This can be a day of fantastic photography of an interesting landscape. Weather, level of the water, etc. will all play into our photo experience. Bring snacks, sunscreen and good hiking boots. Always looking for new adventures in this part of California, if anyone knows of interesting places to stop, please share.
