Take your time, and enjoy the absolute solitude you experience along Saucer Basin. If you've never felt like you were in the middle of nowhere, this truly remote road should fix that. It seems to go on forever, and the view through your windshield is constantly changing as you work across the blowing dunes. Four-wheel drive may be needed on the soft sand sections, but for the most part, any vehicle with durable tires can quickly complete this route in about an hour. Surprisingly, no established camping was found on the route, probably because the winds would drive you mad.
