Personal Experience: This area is where it's at! Well, at least in the winter/cooler weather. I will not touch 110+ degree weather. We went in February when the breeze was cool and truly perfect outside. Basically, if you're planning this trip check the weather first so you have an enjoyable experience! On this road alone you will find this tower, a boulder park with carved animals, a UFO repair stop, hot springs and endless abandoned homes/buildings. It is a truly unique experience. The desert tower exceeded all of my expectations. Inside is like an oddities shop. You will want to spend a decent amount of time here so plan your day accordingly. Pay the $2 so you can walk the 4 or 5 stories to the top (this also gets you access to Boulder Park). It's completely worth it. Each floor has more oddities and unique artwork. There's something about this area that gives me a little more hope with San Diego. Living in the city, where there is so much congestion, constant construction & pollution, it's sooooooo refreshing to see nothing but pure, open land for as far as the eye can see.
I made so many friends here!
There are I think 8 dogs on the property. They're all extremely friendly and I thought they added a great touch to the experience:
I was a real big fan of the white doggy:
