worn landscapes await you. Rocks and sand
everywhere.

There will be what seems like a million RV's
during the winter months. Actually it is officially
estimated in the tens of thousands.

U.S. Bureau of Behavioral Corrections
Considering the barren aspect of the desert
it is not recommended to build any firerings.
Enjoy a pristine campfire free of walls of
rock. Stone firerings are frowned upon by
BLM and the Forest Service.
