A tiny slice of heaven and a great base to explore the surrounding desert wilderness. Until 1940, this isolated outpost received its mail by mule – it's still so remote that the federal government classifies it as a 'frontier community.' Its diverse population includes artists, ecologists, farmers and cowboys. Though only 32 miles south of Torrey on Hwy 12, you have to traverse 11,317ft-high Boulder Mountain to get here. Note that pretty much all services shut down November through March.
