Driving to Indian Wells. It's fairly simple; just take Interstate 10 east, east, and further east.
The billboards get scarier the further east you go.
Wind farm. Apparently this mountain pass is one of the windiest places in California. And, still more creepy billboards.
Parking on the grass at the Open.
The BNP Paribas Open!
Not that unlike the US Open, but about 1/10th the crowds. Has a really nice, relaxed atmosphere.
Court 2. The bench seating there is unreserved, so so we spent quite a bit of time there, close to the players.
Court 1. Murray playing a journeyman challenger.
Ooh, I like how this shot turned out.
Some dude sunbathing while watching tennis.
The desert DOES get a lot of sun. Even I had to use sunblock, and I still got very dark.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga serving. The man hits HARD.
It was EXTREMELY sunny out on court 2. Coupled with the fact it was about 89 degrees... we were broilin'. ;)
