I Visited Niland, The Salton Sea, and Slab City.

Niland CA - Beach Sunset

I traveled to The Salton Sea to meet some of the alternative communities and see the incredible artwork coming from the area.  Also it’s a great place to get in some drone flights.

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo – an amazing adventure!

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is an incredible place.  We saw, touched, learned about and enjoyed countless animals from all over the globe.  Incredible views, amazing animals.  I got a video of a Grizzly Bear trying to catch a fish underwater!  Check out my pictures and videos.  This is certainly one of the top zoos I have ever visited.  (I would recommend taking the zoo shuttle for $2- My legs are still sore from all the walking up hill).  We also found a few extra animals like a Fearow.
