Photos of Whitney Pocket in Nevada

Site-Map
This page has photos of Whitney Pocket in the Gold Butte region of Nevada. Gold Butte is roughly 45 miles southwest of Mesquite in the Mojave Desert. Whitney Pocket is a scenic area of red Aztec sandstone eroded into interesting shapes, making the area a favorite of photographers. The road to Whitney Pocket in Gold Butte has rough pavement, so is relatively easy traveling. Camping is available in this area, making it easier to explore further into the Gold Butte region. But beyond Whitney Pockets, the Gold Butte Road, Mud Wash Road, and others are quite rocky, rough and very slow going. For photographers, a favorite area in Gold Butte is the Little Finland area, another 12 miles or so southwest over very rugged, rocky roads. Although 4WD is recommended if venturing beyond Whitney Pocket, it's probably not required. But a vehicle with high clearance and very good tires is a must if going all the way to Little Finland. A good assortment of all the maps needed to explore the various areas within Gold Butte is available at Bird and Hike. I strongly recommend getting these maps and marking mileages between turns to help you navigate into the region. Otherwise, follow these directions. Take exit 112 from I-15, turn right on the first road after crossing the bridge over the Virgin River - this is Gold Butte Road (GBR). Take the paved GBR to Whitney Pockets; the pavement ends here and GBR is very rocky and rough thereafter. Go 3.9 miles generally SW to Mud Wash North Rd (MWN). Turn right onto MWN and continue SW for 3.2 miles to Mud Wash Rd. Turn right and follow Mud Wash Rd for 4.0 miles - first west, then NW to Little Finland Rd. Turn right onto LF road traveling back now SE for two miles to the Little Finland parking area.
