Kenny, one of my favorite short rides is up La Contenta road to Eureka peak. Seems like it is mostly sandy at the bottom and a good place to practice sand riding.
I go to Joshua tree every February to visit my sister in law, maybe next year we can meet and do some riding ?

The sand on that road now is very deep for about a mile. But worse then that, the park has allowed a tourist outfit to run many trips per day in multi seated Hummers and they have made the entire road all the way to Eureka deep washboard. It's just miserable to drive on. I don't even take my quad on it as it just shakes the poo out of it. What's worse is that I own a private piece of property way up in there and haven't been visiting it because of the miserable washboarding.

Nothing worse than deep washboard combined with heavy sand. Sorry to hear that getting to your property up that way has been turned into a terribly unpleasant experience. Saw a lot of that same thing years ago down around Rocky Point in Mexico on the Gulf of California. Vehicle wrecking washboard with deep sand all the way out to the beach. Not fun at all..


The voyage of discovery that truly matters is not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes.
