Great pictures Desert Dawg. Do tell where you took them.
Top to Botom:
Red Lake, a dry lake - 25 miles north of Kingman, Arizona - looking west.
Lots of things go on out here, model rocketry once a month, firing bowling ball cannons now and then (shoots bowling balls a measured 1/2 mile, target
shooting in a bunkered area.
It's big enough to make low speed (150 mph) runs in a Land Speed Record car.
About 2 x 4 miles of smooth and then you hit the pucker bushes.
The dry lake stays very smooth.
Probably because it's off the beaten track a bit
When the rains come, better get off, it becomes a slippery red mud area in short order.
Off to the east of the Chloride Murals
East of Red Lake looking west in the very late afternoon.
Just east of the Western Grand Canyon access road.
Arroyo Burro beach in Santa Barbara, California.
From a photo safari for a book.
Looking north from the cliff area that's to the north of the Old Beale Wagon Road.
The road runs through a limestone rock bed area here and the BLM does not allow vehicles on the old and historical road.
Wagon tracks are worn into the road.
Just barely west of Kingman, Arizona - which has a lot of history and much of it is easily accessed.
Some more of the Chloride Murals.
Do a search on the web for more information.
It's an interesting story and a short hike from the partially inhabited ghost town of Chloride, Arizona.
Great restaurant in town.
Good food and over 200 different beers in the cooler.
N/E of Red Lake.
Lots of intriguing stuff out here to explore.
Next trip, if we can get everyone squared away is a visit to the Gold Mine mansion.
A 4x4 trip on good dirt roads - meaning a car could handle most of it - with the last two miles requiring 4x4.
Hiking not recommended.
We have deer, coyotes, javelina, rattlesnakes, Gila Monsters, big mountain lions and elk in the area and that could be problematic to a hiker, but the
biggest danger in my opinion is the two large by huge bulls that hang out in the area.
The trees in the area are too short to do any good and you'd need an African caliber rifle to put one down.
I'll post up a little story about the preliminary run, finding the trail in etc. that I did awhile back.
It'll be on the writing board in a bit.
