Slab City and the Salton Sea

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

This is what it looks like just down the steps of our motorhome. 

Welcome to Slab City
Welcome to Slab City RV Resort

This morning after breakfast, I got my bike off the jeep and rode it all over Slab City taking pictures.  Between yesterday’s jeep ride through the city and today’s pictures, I have tons of pictures.  Here are a few:

The pictures below are of our stroll through the inner passages and rooms of Salvation Mountain.  It is quite large with many rooms.

As we were driving down the road, this Indian on a horse, with another horse in tow trotted by us.

Around 3:30 we headed out in the jeep to catch the birds and sunset over the Salton Sea.

See you later.


  1. We've seen that Indian looking guy at the Slabs as well riding & leading a riderless horse......strange. But then again there are a lot of strange things at the Slabs. If your still there Saturday night be sure to check out 'The Range'. It's near Solar Mikes & it's where the Slabbers gather with their guitars & drums Saturday night. Another one of those experiences.........

    1. We are already in the desert near Borrego Springs tonight. A couple of days at Slab City was enough. Visited Solar Mike and he knew you well.

  2. Yup, things sure get "colorful" around there. Did you check out the library yet? The golf course? heh heh. We liked the community campfire in our group. Each evening folks would wander up with their lawn chairs and join in. One night a guitar player came by and entertained us. Another night we all went to the Range, like Al mentioned. It's a Live and Let Live Lifestyle, for sure. But ya gotta look past the strange ones for the many good folks who are also there. Like any big city, there are a few strange fellows. LOL

    1. Yes, they are a strange bunch. Pat, our talkative neighbor invited me over last evening for a little medicinal marijuana. I declined saying I had to drive in the morning and wasn't sure the affect it would have on me.
      Other than Pat, I did not meet anyone else except for Solar Mike. He is a regular fellow.
