Desert Drive

Today, I went back up to Amargosa and back.

A few notes: Many Denny’s restaurants are closing. At least one in Victorville, and the one in Baker is now a Pancake House. The good news is that it has all you can eat pancakes for 3.99. They only open at 6am though, which is a bummer when I got there at 5:55am and 45 degrees outside.

The Amargosa River is flowing, at least for a few more weeks. Upstream of here it flows nearly year round, as the bedrock forces the river above ground. Here, near Dumont Dunes, the river will eventually be absorbed back into the soil. In the background is the bridge of CA highway 127.

All that water does help some small flowers to grow.

And a little bit of yellow for variety.

Because everyone else has done this.
