Alvord Part II

The cracked mud surface of the Alvord desert...
The floor of the Alvord desert...
Unlike the salt flats of Utah the floor of the Alvord desert is cracked dry mud. High winds whip up the fine white dust... during our two day stay there the dust got into everything.

Camped out the desert...
All alone on the desert...
Except for two other groups  a few miles away we were alone on the flats. With no lights around us, the night sky was brilliant with thousands -- maybe tens of thousands -- of stars. I couldn't remember the last time I saw the Milky Way so clearly.
