Our Hajj is Complete

Last Weekend, we completed our Fifth Pillar Koranic Obligation to complete the Hajj, and visited Mecca while we were in South West California.
It was one our way back from the Salton Sea, where we had HOPED to see flocks of migratory water fowl, but instead just found a brackish inland lake, with an occasional seagull (not a whole Flock of Seagulls).

Note: if you are in Mecca, and attempting to head East towards the I-10 on Box Canyon Road, do not waste your time.  The bridge has been washed out by the recent heavy rains that Southern California has experienced.  Turn around, drive back up to Coachella, and put an extra 10 miles on your vehicle.  There's no short cut here in December 2010.
