{Cold Snap in the Desert}

I'm taking a day off from the studio and headed on an adventure south to the strange world of the Salton Sea. Going to make a trip out to Salvation Mountain, drop off some food donations for its visionary, 78-year-old Leonard Knight, and take some pictures. If you saw Sean Penn's excellent adaptation of "Into the Wild" you'll remember Leonard Knight quite vividly. A strange but amazing man (little youtube clip here.) Then hopefully stop by Slab City to meet an artist named Charlie Russell who built a sprawling installation that he calls "East Jesus" out of junk. Oh, the pictures I will have for you tomorrow. I am quite beside myself with excitement to meet these two fellas.

But before I go, some quick pictures from my morning hike and a most frosty desert.




Have a good day, my sweets!
