This is real desert material. When we were on our way out of Death Valley and had never heard of anyone talking about this area. It is actually in the Lone Pine, California area . You will find the longer you travel and associate with fulltime RV'ers the more it becomes a name dropping contest. Have you ever been to ???, You should go see ????. It's hard to see everything, regardless of of the length of time you have been on the road. We have talked to fulltimers who have been on the road for 17 years, and they will tell you they have just begun to see new things.
For us seeing all the big tourist area's was our goal, but area's like this were just icing on the cake.
