Mexico - August 1st, 2019

Yuma to Los Angeles (278 miles +/-)

In which I visit the Algodones Dunes and photograph the border fence, which results in a very polite but thorough interrogation, background check, and criminal record check by the Border Patrol.

Also, Bombay Beach, The Last Resort, on the hot and deserted Salton Sea

The border fence in the Algodones Dunes.

Self portrait at the end of the road, the exact moment when the Border Patrol showed up and made clear that they wanted to know exactly who I was and what I was doing.

Photos of the truck are okay, but not of the agents, and defiantly not of national security installations.

Near Calexico, after being cleared of any terrorist intent.

The Last Resort.

Downtown Bombay Beach.

Travel is an uncomfortable breaking of habits and thwarting of expectations! ✌️
