Flying off the Black Rock Desert Dry Lake Bed.
|Unloading on the lake bed.|
|The truck and trailer from above.|
|The 'Black Rock' for which the desert is named.|
Pioneers crossing the desert on the Oregon Trail used this rock as a signpost.
|The pioneers very much appreciated this hot spring near the rock.|
Sure would have been a welcome bath and laundry after all the waterless desert.
|The very smooth and flat lake bed has been used for land speed records.|
|Lots of traffic these days.|
|This was the site of the annual 'Burning Man' Festival.|
70,000 campers were here for a week this year.
They're proud to leave no evidence except tracks in the dirt.
|This is Fly Geyser nearby.|
It was a hole drilled for a geothermal experiment, and was never capped.
