Gold Rush


Starting in 1905, the Union Pacific Railroad used Kelso Depot in the Mojave Desert to add extra steam locomotives to trains approaching Kessler Summit. Later, in 1924, the railroad added a restaurant and hotel rooms for passengers. With the advent of diesel locomotives, the depot became obsolete. The site is now a museum.


This selection gets its name from the faulted, shifting and polyrhythmic accompaniment.

Santa Ana

Named after the hot, dry and intense Southern California winds that blow in off the desert.
