The Trail leading to White Pockets is recommended for 4-wheel drive vehicles with decent clearance due to some deep sandy areas. It was a nice drive in with a short hike to White Pockets. Spice our 12 year old boxer, doesn't have the energy level she did two years ago when we visited, so we took it slow. We took several rests to and from White Pockets finding a nice tree to sit under in the shade on the way.
The beautiful rock formations and the peacefulness of the area is a powerful tonic and you can spend hours here just soaking it all in.
On our way back, we came across a family in an all-wheel drive vehicle who had found themselves hopelessly stuck in deep sand and were in need of rescue. Happy to help them out of their situation, we used our ARB hydraulic jack for the first time to raise the front end enough to slide the Maxtrax under their front tires! It worked like a charm and they were happily on their way again.
The sun was quickly setting, so we opted to spend the night on the trail. It would be our first time camping in our Ursa Minor J30 roof top tent. After finding a nice spot just off the trail to set up camp, we cooked up some chili and corn bread and with our bellies full, crawled up into the Ursa Minor for a restful night of sleep! We woke early to a cool, overcast morning. French pressed coffee and scrambled eggs were a welcome start to the day!
