Our extended weekend took us across miles of desert space, sometimes offering some unusual views.
A canal through the sand dunes along I-8 just west of Yuma, Arizona.
Alfalfa fields in the middle of the desert, with the help of tons of irrigation water.
The town of Twentynine Palms (there were more than 29) has a number of murals.
A church at the edge of town.
Before you leave town headed east you had best take care of all of your business.
In case you are lost there is a sign post at a cross roads along those 100 miles.
I have seen old shoes thrown across telephone wires, but this took that approach to new levels.
Finally we reached the town of Parker, Arizona.
