Tatooine

With apologies to all my friends who live in the San Joaquin Valley of Central California.

Driving through the very arid valley along a very dull interstate highway, we stared from our car windows and decided that George Lucas must have taken his ideas for the climate and terrain of Tatooine from this area between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

You are very close since I believe he grew up in Modesto... (George Lucas)

You are funny! Just love the photos.

I would believe that! Still, the photos are beautiful.

It has its own severe sort of beauty. That last photo with the windmill is striking.

It's not just us. Flying home from Ohio last week it was brown from Iowa westward. Very very brown.

Sometimes this patch does look other-worldly. Tatooine is probably a good a guess as any!
