... journey - trying to find a way back to LA without going on the Freeway.
Not far from Nipton we saw a very strange sight of three glowing towers in the dessert. A area of about half a km surrounded the towers with mirrors focusing light on to the central tower. According to the local magazine the towers as an alternative energy generation source have been controversial.
