With Great Basin Bird Observatory’s 10-day workweeks, Anne and I tried to make the most of our 4-day weekends. On one of those weekends, we went to California and visited the Salton Sea and Anza Borrego…
The All-American Canal, the sole source of water into California's Imperial Valley. Here, I-8 parallels the Canal.

Ocotillos make wonderful subjects, I think
