Salton Sea Trip Day 2: Glamis Sand Dunes Area

East of the Salton Sea. Day 2 took us along the Coachella Canal and through Glamis before heading back to Salton City.

Traintracks - the type you want to start walking along on and go on forever

The trees are being used to shield the track from any winds which bring up the sand storm. Looking through here, it is hard to believe that these tracks are surrounded by desert and sand dunes.

Cemetary in Glamis. Who lays there? Not so sure. Miners? Perhaps. Or railway workers? Coffee drinkers?
