Sevier Desert in Utah
May 10, 2017 § 1 Comment
We are in one of the four campgrounds in the Little Sahara White Sand Dunes Recreation Area in Utah’s Sevier Desert which also boasts the Bonneville Salt Flats east of Salt Lake City. The Little Sahara, located south of Salt Lake City, is a popular off road vehicle playground on the sand dunes mostly on weekends. The land is managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The first site we were in was a little too close to the action.
It was great for people watching over the weekend. There were many different types of vehicle, ages of riders, and sexes. Some of the little ones could hardly reach the floor but they hung on to the hand grips and away they went.
We moved to an interior site that is out of the main traffic pattern before the next wave starts coming in on Thursday and Friday.
The snow melt floods will recede and campgrounds will begin to open this Sunday so we will be heading to National Forest campgrounds then as we gradually head north.
In the meantime, we are enjoying a peaceful wait in a nice desert campgound.
