six hundred eighty one

desalinate

 

… I started scanning some film today that was shot with the Widelux from 6 months to a year ago. Here is one from the desert. This is in Mojave National Preserve, one of my favorite places in California, if not my favorite. There is never anyone around and never more than a few people at the designated campgrounds, and you can camp and hike pretty much anywhere you damn well please. It is also huge (the third largest National Park Service run land behind Death Valley and Yellowstone), with a wide variety of scenery, dirt back roads and micro climates. And it contains the densest joshua tree forest on the planet (yep, more than Joshua Tree National Park itself). If you live near southern California and have never been, put it on your list for winter, early spring or late fall. You will not be disappointed, but make sure to stop at the visitor center to grab a map and newspaper because there is no entrance gate like most national parks. The roads are long and far between gas stations, so make sure you get fully tanked at Ludlow on I-40 or Baker or Cima Road on I-15.
