Exploring Myer Valley And Beyond

by Administrator 19. April 2012 17:09

The Island is one of those areas that we have driven by for twenty years and never stopped. To be honest we are not sure it is even called the Island. It is a freeway island, sandwiched in between the high speed lanes of Interstate 8. The Jacumba Mountains flank its' northern edge while the In-Ko-Pah Gorge lies to south. 

Driving east I was surprised to find some late season snow near Pine Valley.




Bighorn Sheep, freeway debris, Sunrise Powerlink towers, Native American artifacts, target practice folks and beautiful desert all stuck between the high speed lanes of the Interstate 8 Freeway




The Island is home to rugged desert backcountry, all conveniently located between the high speed lanes of Interstate 8




Looks like this surfboard never made it back to Arizona. Wonder if its' owner missed it?




We found loads of pottery on the Island




Beautiful backcountry desert with the slight hum of the freeway in the background.

Ocotillo Buds were scattered about

Old pop top Coors Can. Wonder what happened if you reversed the instructions on lid?




Road to nowhere. Old highway 80 was the major artery into and out of California before the Interstate 8 was built




Tunnel underneath the freeway




We found Paola's backpack
