Hasselblad, Salton Sea 2013

We stole away to the Salton Sea this weekend. Inspired by a trip years ago, we found out just the day before that a group of people we knew were also heading out to the desert for the weekend. We camped nearby and watched some of the antics from afar. It was a little bit Mad Max meets Bellflower (yes there was a flame thrower).

Mostly it was just nice to get away from Los Angeles, even for a little while, turn off our phones and just be. We explored Niland by bike and hiked up to Slab City at night. My car got stuck in sand and a kind fellow with 4 wheel drive had to pull us out. Shawn made the best tofu scramble on our camp stove. I tried to take some medium format photos so hopefully I’ll have those to share soon.

All around fun. More camping adventures in the future.

    I’ve been dying to head out there. Looks so lovely all aglitter at night.

    p.s… Bellflower is one of the worst movies ever made.

    This looks more Burning Man than I was expecting, but also like a lot of fun!

    This looks like the coolest trip ever. Def reminds me of Burning Man.
