I mentioned Murphy and I are camping at the Salton Sea State Recreation Area near Mecca, CA, and about 40 miles from Palm Springs.
There’s a whole lotta nothin’ out here. Just the way I like it. This is the view of my side windows. Morning coffee while looking at this view is awesome.
I’ve wanted to visit this place for several years. It’s fascinating. I almost changed my mind about coming here because every time I mentioned it to someone in the campground I was previously I would get these looks like I have 7 eyes or comments like, “I’ve never heard anything good about the Salton Sea”. Someone even told me it had completely dried up.
Well people, I love it here and I’m going to stay even longer!! Yesterday was a great day for some picnic table sunning and coloring.
