Drone Image: Koehn Dry Lake Bed…

…can be seen in the upper-right-hand side of this image.  I took this photo during my recent visit to the El Paso Mountains.

The white sheen of the lake bed is not an illusion; it is the result of salt deposits, which have been mined there since 1911.

El Paso Mountains…

So, I’d parked my Jeep along this trail in the El Paso Mountains, and I decided to try to capture the vista, with the Rand Mountains to the south-west.

I was satisfied with the results, but what struck me after viewing this video on my computer, is the trail in the distance that seems to disappear into the Rand Mountains.

 

The Cajon Pass, At Sunset…

Many people traverse the 15 freeway, on their way to and from the high desert, or to Las Vegas.  I wonder if they ever give a thought to the world that lies beyond the concrete ribbon that runs through the desert.

I use my DJI Phantom 4 (https://www.dji.com/phantom-4) and my Jeep to explore that world.
The image below was taken in November, 2017, near Hwy 138.  Railroad tracks, used by freight trains, can be seen in the background.  Vehicles can be seen on the 15 freeway in the distance.
