"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Imperial Sand Dunes


One of the benefits of visiting Slab City was a drive through the Imperial Sand Dunes.

What a playground for dune buggies, and ORV’s.

Located just a few miles East of the Imperial Valley, which is an irrigated oasis growing everything imaginable, they are something to see.  Soaring hundreds of feet high.

I would have loved to own a buggy and get out there, roaring around.  Can only imagine what all that sand does to bearings, chains, and all other mechanical parts, though.

Just another little place I can say “been there”.  Heading toward home.Sad smile
