Barstow California is a FUNNY little town. It is at the crossroads between two highways in the middle of the Mojave.

In the morning I heard a huge boom, which I’m assuming was some kind of weapons testing at the nearby …

It may be possible I’m biased because there are more deer than people at this campground, as in, I have it all to myself. There is a ton of wildlife here, and I’ve even seen ANOTHER bald eagle. I swear, I’ve never seen a bald eagle in the wild in my life and now I’ve seen …
