I drop down onto the fan and head south toward Kelso Dunes
My campsite is about 1.5 miles away, beyond the first low hill protruding onto the fan and to the left. I try my cell phone here and it works, so I call in and change my outgoing message to let callers know where I am.
The only areas around here where my phone has worked are high on the fan, like right here, but not much higher. I have no phone reception back at my campsite.
