|Located in the Randsburg mining district about 24 miles north of the town of Mojave on California's Highway 14, Red Rock Canyon offers a bit of unexpected drama to the driver headed towards the eastern Sierra Nevada.
Here is a small photo album of this spectacular place and its less well-known companion, Last Chance Canyon. Long familiar to rock hounds, miners, and off-roaders, this remote corner of the Mojave offers a good introduction to the wonders of the high desert wilderness.

By the way, many of these photos are panoramas and will require you to scroll in order to see the whole image.
