Last weekend Greg (dragonrcr) and I drove down to Whitney Pockets, an area about 30 miles south of Mesquite, Nevada.
(I found this picture of Whitney Pockets online)
From I-15 the area around Mesquite doesn't seem that alluring (no offense Mesquit-ians, Mesquitos, Mesq . . . residents of Mesquite).
But my brother and I rode there one rainy day a couple of years ago after running across some gps tracks online, so we knew there was some fantastic riding in that area.
We thought a few more guys would join us, but nobody else was able to take the time to go. It was dark on Thursday before we left Logan. We arrived in Mesquite sometime that night and found a church parking lot to park in and sleep for a few hours.
When we woke up we went to Walmart, then out to Whitney Pockets to find a place to camp.
We stopped and camped short of the main Whitney Pockets area. This must be the busy season there, but there was only a handful of other campers.
