I decided to approach White Pocket via BLM1017 – BLM1066 through Poverty Flat Ranch as suggested by Synnatschke. The direction is well described on the web site which included a Topo Map with GPS coordinates. From what I read, it is less risky than the short cut through Paw Hole.
The drive to White Pocket was the most difficult journey I have ever made. The road is alternating between rocks and deep sand. I was mentally well prepared to drive in the deep sand – maintain constant speed and do not stop. It sounds easy except when you see the rocks, you must slow down to a crawl immediately before risking a flat tire. For the most part, my Jeep Wrangler kept me going without too much difficulty. There were a few hills that presented challenges that I had to back down and then speed up to gain enough momentum to reach the top. At one spot, my vehicle was completely stuck in the deep sand. I had to use shovel to dig my way out.
I realized all that effort was worthwhile as soon as I saw White Pocket. The Brain Rocks under the sun looks, well, just like brains. Stepping on it, I can almost feel the brain activity. The entire White Pocket area is fairly small. One can cover all the grounds in an hour. However, it packs so many geographic features that one can spend a whole week there to photograph.
