Blogger is being weird, so I'll narrate the pictures from this post.
On Saturday, my dad and I went to Mitchell Caverns in Essex, CA. The first photo shows where we stopped for gas; Ludlow, CA (there's nothing there!)
After Ludlow, we drove straight to the caverns and you can see how beautiful the landscape looked from up on the mountain. Before the tour, we wandered around the desert a little, and I managed to see a Horned Lizard from the car - it sat patiently while I took a bunch of photos of it.
It's hard to photograph well inside the cave without a tripod, but most of these came out alright (I'm not really happy with most of them, but they get the idea across).
Finally, we stopped to look at some interesting rock formations, and at the Kelso Dunes for a few minutes to snap a photo.
