US Border Fence - California DesertJuly 15, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 39 °C
Not too far west of Felicity, the highway gets within a hundred yards or so of the US-Mexico border. You can see the boarder fence stretching for miles with a bit of a no man's land between it and the road.
We did find a spot where you could drive almost right up to the fence. I wanted to get out and walk up to it, but I was too chicken. There were all kinds of signs saying it was a permit area and no trespassing. There were also cameras watching, so we didn't want to chance getting in trouble. I know, wimpy. 🙃

I am not sure what innocent bystander is going to get killed by flying 60 pound bags of drugs in the middle of the desert, but you can see through the fence already. Thank goodness. Try as we might, though, we couldn't spot one bag of drugs. Maybe next time.Read more
