HOT STUFF IN THE MOJAVE DESERT


On the way back from Omaha and the annual convention of the UNION PACIFIC HISTORICAL SOCIETY, George and I stopped near Primm, Nevada, on the California side of the border, to get a closer look at the solar power plants. The white hot solar receivers stand out starkly against the backdrop of the Mojave Desert landscape; it is a sight hard to ignore. All in all, the plants are visually impressive and worthy of a few minutes delay.

I am 87 years old and married for 65 years. My wife passed away in 2016. I am a retired engineer and spent 35 years developing INS gyroscopes. I was a High School mentor in physics, a mountaineer, a model builder, a machinist and I have a degree in Physics. My interests include railroad history and photography, science history, cosmology, interesting people, and old engineering drawings. I place a high value on my friendships. I enjoyed my life and I am trying to look forward with a sense of anticipation and curiosity.
