need some info!

Planning a trip to Joshua tree, death valley, and Lake Mead. Looking to do mostly car camping and day hikes mostly. Don't want to camp in "camp grounds" with a lot of other people though. Any advice for trails to check out in these places. Not looking for technical offroading, just cool scenery and such.

I think so. My parents started the FMCA Jeep Club, so they will have the standard 30+rigs parked on the Ballarat spot. Last year was a blast. I didn't find any burros that wanted to give a ride, though...

oohhh....thanksgiving, huh? Maybe I can schedule the trip out to the in-laws to hit this on the way back and spend a few days.

Dirty's Minions don't officially exist. They are a myth, a bedtime story, a whispered rumor. They are ghosts.
