Twin Tanks Area #2 - Joshua Tree NP

This is the long overdue Part 2 of 3 posts relating to the greater Twin Tanks area in JTNP. If you are so inclined, here is a link to Part 1. The following photos are examples of the spectacular sights to be seen in this area. As I said in post 1, this area is very rugged, and great care should be taken while there.   This one is posted first, for no other reason that I love it. Take a bite! I was headed that-a-way! Except for the first 50 yards or so, it is very

Desert Oddity - Shaffer Fish Bowl - Route 66

I've run across a lot of odd things in the desert, right? Today's installment isn't just one of the oddest, it is one of my all time favorites as well. It's called "The Shaffer Fish Bowl." I've spoken to many people who know a great deal about Route 66 and very few had ever heard of it, and not a single one of them had actually seen it. We went there in late March.

The Hunt For Seven Troughs Ghost Town, Nevada

The Hunt for Seven Troughs Ghost Town, Nevada. A Trip That Ended At Tunnel Camp. Standing in the dusty road in the center of town takes you back to another time entirely. Old buildings still standing from an era long gone by. If you dare, you can take it all in and imagine what life must have been like back when this was a small mining town. Not only is there a long history of this place, but it's also rumored to be haunted. One thing I know for sure is that it's a great place to take the
