Stargazing with a flashlight
From Ubehebe Crater there is a 27 mile stretch of Dirt road that takes you to Racetrack Playa. That road is ultimate punishment journey which relentlessly shakes every bone in your body especially in a 4 wheel all terrain vehicle, which is absolutely necessary. Halfway during that journey one passes thru a Joshua tree forrest on hillside.
These trees are amazing in different shapes and sizes. At night it is pitch dark, more dark than you have ever seen, a perfect setup for Milky-way watching.
