There are open mine pits all over the place here. This miner was considerate.
Here are directions:
|Walk toward the ocotillo, then turn right.|
|When Topiaries Turn Their Back on You! next on FOX.|
[Hint: never turn your back on them.]
|You can't read this. It says|
Pre-Columbian Indian Trail. Please keep off trail
so that it may remain for future visitors.
|Imperial Dunes (Glamis)|
If you Google "Glamis dispersed camping," it will indicate North and South Dunes Glamis campground, but that's not this. Those are long-term, dusty parking lots filled with other RVers. You could stay here at the Overlook, without a lot of other RVers, and get the dust and wind for free. Spectacular view, but I'm not sure how long it would take for the driven sand to take the canvas right off your tent, if you know what I mean. After half an hour, Annie announced she had sand in her pockets, and I knew what she meant.
This is one of the top 100 things I've ever seen. You should see it, too. ATVs are rented right down the road in the "town" of Glamis, if that's your style.
|Old Ogilby. The guy on the right is taking pictures. Meta!|
|This hole has garbage in it already! Get the bags!|
This was the former Ogilby schoolhouse.
I think this completes the things I wanted to do here, and just in time. The wind is blowing in some Big Hot, and we're going where it's Not.
