Okay we missed a lot on this trip, but we'll go back! Watch the slideshow/video for a couple surprise finds we made. And we're sure there is more. This is an isolated spot, so don't go alone, but a great place to get away from it all and do some exploring. We'd be curious to see what you find?

It doesn't matter which desert you are in - Sonoran, Mojave, Great Basin or any other desert. Night sky viewing is always better in the desert. Whether it's stars, the milky way, moon, meteor showers or the International Space Station. ISS is one you won't want to miss out on. Follow its orbit and know when, how long and how bright it will be at your location. Time lapse video, history and links here. http://www.in-the-desert.com/ISS.html

Photos are great -- with the right composition/prospective. How about video? If only you could fly? You can! And right now the price is not prohibitive. You can now show areas that before "DRONES" were not accessible. Here's a quick look at what you can do with the new technology available.

HOT TOPIC! Rattlesnake Behavior. Are they all aggressive? Which one has the most toxic venom? This information was supplied by a well known herpetologist. This is the real scoop. There is a lot of miss-information floating around on the net. Also included is an article on Venom. http://www.in-the-desert.com/Snake_Behavior.html

The trip we took was suggested by our Friends Dan & Lynn. And it was a good one. Great scenery, a lot of desert, mines / prospects and wildlife, including 3 snakes! Got them off the road safely. Want to see more? Video slideshow after the link. http://www.in-the-desert.com/Rock_Corral.html
