Blythe, California

In the winding desert between
two of America's busiest cities
rests Blythe, California,
a transition town with
dozens of fast food joints
and gas stations
and highway patrolmen,
feeding, fueling, and feuding
with some of the fastest people
on the planet.

Blythe, California is a town
that accepts its fate
as a place nobody wants to be
for very long,
and it really isn't very far
from here.
