I’m At One Of The Most Unique Places In The United States…

Yesterday I drove the about 75 miles from Thousand Palms, California to arrive at Slab City. It’s located about three miles out into the desert from the small city of Niland, CA on the southeastern shore of the Salton Sea which is about 35 miles long.

Known as Camp Dunlap during World War II, RVers found it in the 1960’s. I’ve been stopping here for the last 16 years.

Here’s a couple of links to help you get a better understanding of this most unusual place!
