Salton Sea and Borrego Springs 2017

Took a great three day trip out to the desert around the Salton Sea area and Galleta Meadows in Borrego Springs.  It was a fun trip with gorgeous weather in the mid 70’s to low 80’s during the day.   Lots of photo opportunities, especially if you visit Salvation Mountain, Slab City and East Jesus (see Slab City).  There is no religious connotation in the name East Jesus – it is a colloquialism for a place in the middle of nowhere beyond the edge of service availability; the off-grid facility operates with no municipal utilities.  I would also recommend you visit Galleta Meadows in Borrego Springs and see the approximately 130 metal sculptures by Ricardo Breceda (Atlas Obscura).  My favorites were the sea serpent, the grasshopper and the scorpion.  We spent two nights and three days exploring the area, which I think is a minimum amount of time.  For me, next time I go out I will probably spend three nights and four days.  It’s a highly recommended trip if you are into interesting and unique places.
