Way out in the desert, at the northeast end of Lake Mead in Nevada, lies one of our favourite new boondocking spots: Whitney Pocket.
In amongst the crags we set up our RV and spent a few days wandering this remote and peaceful area. Well, peaceful until the boy scouts showed up with their black powder guns, but you know it’s Nevada and you can do stuff like that!
It’s similar to the Valley of Fire with all the colours in the rocks: stripes of white and red with patches of yellow and blotches of purple. But different from the Valley of Fire because it’s at a different elevation, so there are Joshua Trees as well.
Here is an arch I discovered last year, which prompted us to return this year. I wanted to photograph here on a sunny day in the late afternoon light. I could imagine there would be nice shadows and the interior of the arch would have a golden glow. I got my wish this year with a beautiful clear day.

I knew there would be lots of things to discover here, and I wasn’t disappointed with what I found! I’ll share more photos from this location coming up soon.
