I took a pleasant drive last week out in the desert. It was nice to get away from the city. Oddly enough, the most expensive gas was in Pasadena where it was over $4 for regular. It was cheaper in Baker, where it's normally very expensive.
I drove some seldom used roads and two-tracks south of Halloran Summit and down past the old Mojave phone booth location. The sandy sections were surprisingly deep and really get your attention. Although the east-west powerline road that crosses the Mojave road had been recently graded.
I stopped to take this photo of Old Dad Mountain. There are two routes I still want to try hiking on that hill. Maybe next month. The weather should be perfect then.
