Trailing Guru Road

"Never Never Take Advantage It May Cost Your Life." Simple and plain, this wisdom has been written on a rock you'll find on your way from Gerlach into the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada where the Granite Mountain Range slopes into the Desert Playa. Next to this rock stretches a spiritual circle put together with rocks. This and many other rock creations can be found along Guru Road - spiritual and otherwise. Elvis stands there too, built from rocks that don't roll! Not too far away you'll find the Gerlach Weather Station, based on a hanging rock. That's all you need (plus food and drinks) on your Black Rock Desert trip: a good weather forecast, Elvis in your ears and the hope that the desert won't take advantage of you.
