Continued from above...
Josh from CA had arrived the previous day and was out exploring on the bike when we arrived. He rolled back into camp on his 640 and I noticed his rear tire was flat! He headed up the hill to his camp to install a new heavy duty tube in the rear tire.
Looking back at the Playa...I've never seen this much water in the desert...Crazy!
I headed back down to camp to get ready for a soak in the hot springs. A lightning storm had been going on out in the distance and it wasn't long before the lake bed was completely surrounded by a awesome thunder storm. Dust started blowing across the playa and lightning was striking all over the lakes surface. I managed to catch 4 strikes with my camera. Very Cool! After a long soak I headed to bed...ready for tomorrows adventure.
LOTS more to come...the main ride report starts on Day 3.
