This morning I woke up at 7 o'clock and felt pretty limber after yesterday's Jeep ride. I was surprised. Took a couple of Tylenol just in case and was was up and going at 8 o'clock. Not sure what to do today, but I know it's going to be a warm one. 82 degrees for a high.
As I was fixing breakfast, I could hear a familiar hum and sure enough a paraglider buzzed the White Lion.During breakfast, I decided this will be the day I take the hour drive over to Slab City. That way I could be doing something and stay in the air conditioning too.
It was 11 o'clock when Yuma and I headed down and around to the other side of the Salton Sea. The drive went without a hitch and at 12:30 I took my first picture as I was coming up on Salvation Mountain from a distance.Drove on up to the entrance and Yuma and I got out for some pictures.
In past years, people were allowed into the rooms and to walk to the top of the mountain, but because of Covid, it is off-limits. Okay by me. I've been through it and on it a number of times.
They also have several exhibits around the area.

|Looks like this place had a fire recently.|
I believe this is Solar Mike's place, but didn't see a sign like normal. Did a Google search and it says that the Sun Works is permanently closed.
