On our way home from a business trip last month we spent a day exploring the desert south west of Blythe, California. We were looking for geodes and other interesting rocks.  That, and indulging in our love of roads that barely qualify for the name!  

The stark beauty of the desert never fails to enchant, and hopefully these photos share some of that experience.
