Saturday we went with friends, Dan & Pat Martenson from Escanaba, MI, to the "Desert Bar". You take this unmarked, unimproved road five miles into the desert to a bar that this guy built out in the foothills of the Buckskin Mountains. We had some trouble even finding it but as you can see apparently a lot of people do find it. The ever indefatigable Teddy, climbed up to the top of a nearby mountain craig to take this photo of the parking lot. It is only open on weekends; it is entirely run on solar power as there is no electricity out there.
I'm thinking, the guy is either a genius or an idiot but from the size of the crowd that was there it must be the former.
Seating was at a premium but we managed to snag four chairs; Pat, Teddy & Dan saved me one so that I could snap this pict.
