I was hoping to write this week about last weekend's fun with 40+ jeeps on the black diamond BullFrog Trail in Johnson Valley, California. The offroad community is currently engaged to save this beautiful OHV park of black diamond trails jeep trails and we were happy to finally have a chance to experience at least one of the trails before it may be lost forever. But...I've had an incredibly busy week and haven't finished processing the photos
And I'm on my way out the door again, this time just Bill and I for a more relaxing pace and some exploration in the northeast region of the Mojave National Preserve. I'm hoping to find some real dinosaur tracks! The Mojave Preserve is one of my favorite places to visit - spectacular rock formations, beautiful cinder cones, the singing sand dunes, the surreal landscape of the lava beds, magnificent mountains, the historic Mojave Road and its Army outposts, more abandoned mines than I think I'll ever be able to visit, and of course miles and miles of trails where you most likely will never see another person. Sometimes we people in California take a lot of this for granted - it's free, it's remote wilderness, we can camp wherever we want, and we can drive on any trail we can handle. Lots of people in other states would give anything to have what we have. So let's not take it for for granted - get out there and enjoy it, and take care of it.
Guess I'll have lots to write about next week!

Nothing after the jump.
