Jo Ann and I were planning to do some hiking in the Turtle Mountains near Needles but the desert was forecast to be unseasonably hot so we decided to head for the coast and cooler temperatures.
The Figueroa Mountain Lookout.
photo by Ron PinkertonI think I stopped at this very station 16 years ago while driving my Unimog home from the importer. Turning into the station I noticed a group of men standing around a Lamborghini and talking to its owner. A curious thing happened after I parked next to a pump on the other side of the station. Most of the guys walked over to admire the Unimog. I asked why and they responded, "You see a Lamborghini every now and then but most of us have never seen a truck like this." Very cool thing to happen on the first day of ownership.
