After the gentle rise all the way up to the mesa-like Laguna Mountains, the landscape of eastern San Diego County abruptly drops into the desert. I always stop at one of the lookout points when I’m at Laguna Mountains.

This photo shows the Carrizo Creek area where it enters Carrizo Badlands between Coyote Mountains (right) and Fish Creek Mountains (left). In the distance, the orderly geometric structures of fields and streets south of the Salton Sea are visible just below the horizon.
