el mirage heat
El Mirage can become an addiction. Even though I'm not actively participating, I have to keep coming back. We usually get there the evening before, have some cold ones, soak up the atmosphere and camp on the lake bed. It's still as intriguing as the first time I went there. This time it was pretty damn hot, well that's probably what you'd expect from a mid-July weekend in the desert, so I wasn't too motivated to go overboard with taking photos. But the sight of an old lakester at the starting line with the wide open sky and the dusty lake bed as a backdrop never ceases to amaze me. This is where traditional hot rodding happens. This is where the magic is. If you think you'd like it too, check out the SCTA schedule. In the meantime, you can take a look at my gallery or enjoy the slideshow.
