Four miles off pavement on a sandy road mostly in a wash was not a place for my rig to go to Fonts Point overlooking the Badlands. In fact there are many roads here that I can’t drive but also many I can. So I was really glad when Lynda and Howard offered to give me a ride there when the timing was right.
Erosion is most fascinating leaving behind natures sculpture to ancient history in geologic time. This carved desert landscape reveals the tilted layers of sediments ranging from 250,000 to 4 million years old.
I turned back and forth catching the sunset to the west while still being able to see last light shine far to the east light up the Salton Sea in the distance. Fonts Point is a spectacular overlook for the badlands and beyond.
