Black Rock Desert Side Trip

We took a trip into the Black Rock Desert, driving north on the playa surface to Black Rock Hot Springs.

We then endured a long bumpy ride on a Jeep trail (that I had discovered in my travels the previous summer) up to the top of a cliff 1300 ft. above the Black Rock playa surface. We enjoyed the panoramic view looking back south toward Gerlach.
