On my way out to Bishop, California I managed to get myself severely stuck on a dry lakebed somewhere in Utah. I drove out onto the lake to take some photos and it wasn't quite as dry as it seemed. I ended up with my rear wheels a foot deep in the mud and feeling like a fool. After a few hours of trying to dig myself out and put rocks from the edge of the lake beneath my tires I managed to flag down someone with a truck on the highway. After telling me that I was completely f****ed, he agreed to try and pull it out.
I took this photo with the almost full moon rising over the valley, and my van on solid ground once again.
