You are looking at a fault line, there are a few similar mountains like this one in the area of the line which runs north to south. There is a road in the photo which is a small piece of the 12-mile scenic drive loop. Beyond this ridge is Lovell Canyon which I’ve posted photos of before. Getting there calls for a ride over the pass at Mountain Springs, Nevada. From there, you can drive to Pahrump, Nevada.
About two years ago, I was at the Red Rock Canyon Scenic Overlook seen in these photos. There were two young guys from California as you can imagine that had these bikes with them. I was and still am amazed by them. So unique, they must be one of a kind, custom-built bikes.
I didn’t ask to ride them but that would have been cool! Californians are inventive folk, many things customized seem to come from that state. I was lucky to get these photos, one of which I was literally blown away when taking. That day was extremely windy and cold since it was winter.
I was blown right over on my ass by one huge gust since I was crouched down for these shots. That must have been funny to see! I remember getting back up and gaining my composure after that one. The young guys put the bikes back on the deck lid of the car and headed into Las Vegas.
