What's REALLY Down Zzyzx Road? Hidden California, Explore It With Us!

If you live in southern California, and have driven the 15 to Las Vegas, or vice versa, you've been by this exit (out in the middle of nowhere) and probably wondered, whats with the name? What's down it... A lot of history, and interesting stuff!

He took in the downtrodden, and charged whatever they could afford, even if it was nothing. He offered Mineral Baths in his purported "Healing" waters, Raised rabbits onsite, grew fresh vegetables, tea's, and sold several "Miracle Cures" which were generally vegetable juices. Curtis even helped save a fish from extinction. The miracle cure claims eventually got the attention of the government, and they foreclosed on his mining claims (he wasn't mining, and was more or less here illegally) and evicted him from this place after a long court battle. The property was then given to the Cal State system, and is now the "Desert Studies Center". Many of the original structures are still standing, leaving a testament to a person, who's energy in this world was powerful and surreal...

"If I had eternity to spend, and with someone I love, I might choose to spend it here, and explore those playas and every sand dune on the horizon... wouldn't be enough to satisfy my hearts curiosity, wanderlust and my thirst for the surreal energy of the desert..."
