Earlier in the summer, I took a trip with a friend up to Rachel, NV and Area 51. We drove down Groom Lake Road to the “gate” of the top secret base. As you drive down the unpaved road, you can see the listening devices in the desert and when you get to the “gate”, it is basically a sign saying go no further or suffer the consequences. Up on the hill, you can see a pickup truck with a watching Camo Dude. These are the contractors that provide security for the perimeter of base. It really is quite eerie out there in the middle of nowhere.
It all made for an interesting experience and a ton of great desert shots. This one is outside the Little A’Le’Inn in Rachel, NV.
