Probing the trail ahead with my drone…

This is a place that is called “The Narrows.”  It is located in California’s Mojave Desert.

The trail was a little too rough for me to continue driving along in my Jeep, so I used my DJI Phantom 4 scout ahead for me.

Desert Airstrip…

This is the remnants of an old airstrip, in the El Paso Mountain Range.  The El Paso’s are located in the Mojave Desert.

Local legend had it that famous test-pilot Chuck Yeager used to land here, when he was stationed at Edwards AFB, in order to go hunting.

Today, the old strip is the domain of off-roaders.

Droning over “Mars…”

Is this evidence of an ancient civilization on Mars?  Hardly; this is an off-road trail in the Calico Mountains, that I photographed with my DJI Phantom 4. November, 2017.

Some areas of the desert do remind me of the Martian landscape, though.
