What the desert has taught me

The desert is my teacher. A few beers on the porch at Panamint Springs and then I'm heading south on the Panamit Valley Road off of 190. In a contemplative mood I soon arrive at the Trona Wildrose Road. I can turn left and enter Wildrose Canyon or I can turn right and head for the delights of Trona. I do nether. I get out of my truck, I'm curious about an old rusty sign set off to the south of the Panamint Valley Road, the sign is next to a little used dirt road, it warns of sonic booms and low flying aircraft.
