Some Concerns

and Some Reassurances


Most people who enjoy Johnson Valley on dirt bikes, quads, buggies
and 4WD know the Friends of Giant Rock. Family vacations exploring on
two and four wheels gave them a love for the desert in all its moods. It
also gave them a dislike for those visitors
who do not understand this country and treat it badly.
