Out in the middle of the desert of Johnson Valley, on the south side of Cougar Buttes, there is a secret that many don't know. On the side of a large rock is a detailed skull that fits the environment perfectly. If you are in the area and have a little free time, this side attraction is worth the short trip to see.
From Lucerne, take Old Women Springs Road to Camp Rock Road and turn Left (North). Take Camp Rock Road 2 miles and turn right (East) on the dirt road named Wilshire Road. Take Wilshire Road 2 miles East towards the hills. Once close to the hills, take whatever path gets you to the coordinates just east of the end of the road.

The Skull is a good place to visit but unfortunately some unscrupulous folks have littered the place and used it for a shooting range. Nevertheless, the surrounding sand dunes are a great place to zip around on and enjoy.

You may come across him in the middle of the Mojave Desert, the mountains of Big Bear, in the central Sierras near Shaver Lake or any other dirty, rocky road in the southwest.
