4-wheel Drive

The base camp or our starting point is usually accessible by standard car, but…

  • A high-clearance vehicle is often needed because dirt roads in the
    desert have deep ruts.
  • 4-wheel or all-wheel drive helps on sections of road that are sandy or
    steep.

Check with the field trip leaders in advance about road conditions. They may
be able to help in finding a ride for side trips.
