Mojave Megaphone / Mesquite Spring (03/27/2020)
Made a stop here on our way up Crucero Road and into Afton Canyon.
BL9470 - Hidden Valley Wash (03/27/2020)
We didn’t have time to run this trail, but went past the east end at Crucero Road and BLM has been putting a lot more trail markers up. The new trail markers (we only saw them at the east end) are now labeling this trail as MT 9470, not BL 9470.
Hungry Valley SVRA - Old Cottonwood Trail (01/25/2020)
We were in the area, so had to make a quick run up and down WP3.

Ran through this trail to cut over from the 4x4 practice area to Old Cottonwood.
Hungry Valley SVRA - Pronghorn Trail (01/25/2020)
We made a quick run up the wall and back down. There was slot of bike traffic out there today.
Hungry Valley SVRA 4x4 Practice Area (01/25/2020)
Had some fun on the obstacles here. We played a little on the steps, some of the rock piles and the sluice. They filled in some dirt around the base of the steps making them much easier now.
