A flowering Joshua tree.

One of many frieght trains seen during our trip. We had started to feel the strong gusty winds that were predicted once - we got into the desert and also started seeing these huge dust clouds. - Here you see a patch of rain next to the dust cloud. More dust clouds can be seen ahead. We pulled off the highway into this small town to get drinks. - You can really see the size of the dust cloud here. As we drove through the dust, you could hear the sand hitting - the windshield.  Here you can see the sand blowing across the - highway, too, like you see snow does when it first starts to snow.
After about an hour or so, the dust clouds disappeared and the visibility improved quite a bit. More flowering Joshua trees. We're now on Interstate 15 heading for Las Vegas, Nevada. The California-Nevada state line.  Most of the buildings are on the Nevada side.
