After staying with myAmy, I headed back to Murrieta where my husband was with his parents. We were to spend Christmas in California this year! The drive from Yuma to Murrieta can be a bit boring, especially if you take the freeway. It gets you there quicker, but for a photographer that's no bueno. I have taken 2 different routes up until then, but I decided to cut through california and head through the Anza Borrego desert. I was not disappointed.
I find a good storm on a landscape makes for a much more interesting subject. Especially a dusty storm.
