Saturday, February 24 @ 1:00 pm

Thirty miles from the nearest 4-lane highway and 223 feet below sea level, Bombay Beach, California is a dystopian paradise where rusty shells of autos await the next show at the Bombay Beach Drive-In while skeletal fish leap from the Salton Sea just beyond the salt-crusty shoreline. A former resort town that has followed the receding health and glamor of its water playground, Bombay Beach is now adopted by artists who faithfully augment its decay with provocative expressions meant to be seen and experienced.

On Saturday, February 24, Mike Livingston will lead a group of RCC members on a field trip to Bombay Beach. We’ll meet at the Coco’s Bakery Restaurant in Redlands at 1:00 pm to carpool to the event. 1140 W Colton Ave, Redlands, CA 92374

It’s about a 1 hr 45 min drive and we’ll want to be on-site before sunset (5:41 pm). Some sites will be in town on asphalt roads, while others will be on the beach on hard dirt roads. While sedans will be able to navigate most dirt roads, trucks and SUVs will be best. We will leave Bombay Beach between 6:00 pm and 6:30 pm. On the return we will pause for dinner in Indio before continuing home. Expect to be back in Redlands around 9:30pm.
