That last little shot there is in Yermo, where three years ago we attempted to stop and fuel up but found a distinct lack of fuel. It needed to be photographed for posterity's sake.
Unfortunately we had started with Calico Ghost Town's parking lot to look at a spectacular syncline/anticline pair - and that made the "early man site" even more sad and pathetic... However, it also makes the long-postponed trip to peruse Calico move up higher on the roster - very cool.
And yes, it does appear that there are a lot of folded rocks in my most recent posts. And yes, I did eat a burger at Bun Boy in Barstow after the adventuring was done. It's tradition (even though Tammy doesn't work there anymore).
