Hanging On By A Thread

If you've taken I-10 from Los Angeles to Arizona, you have to pass through Desert Center, Calfornia. Located exactly halfway between Indio and Blythe is where you'll find it.

It's a pit. Apparently, at one time it was
fairly active - people actually lived there. On purpose. This old train car - I don't know where they hauled it in from - stands in a dirt lot next to the cafe.

I'm not sure there's any reason for anyone to ever stop here. I'm not sure it was a good idea to nix the landfill idea, as it's a perfect place for it. And they closed a prison here too - again, a perfect place for one.

I can't imagine why anyone would want to live here - although, if you're looking for a man it might be a good place, as they slightly outnumber the women. Good luck with that.

A lot of history in that little place,i guess you don't judge a place by it's looks.
