I’m now in Brawley, CA (red dot). Not too far from the Salton Sea. This 3D Google earth image (top image) is looking south. Next, I’ll be riding to Calexico, California which is just on the other side of the border from Mexicali. I’m not crossing into Mexico but will be riding along the border for a bit. I’m on the established “Southern Tier” bicycle route which is followed by thousands of cyclists.
