This video was the first I made during the past week's excursion to the desert ghost town of Siberia. I made the video from my helmet's GoPro camera after spotting a large dust storm rising on the dry lake beds just south of the famous Bagdad Cafe a few miles outside Newberry Springs. Storms like this rise suddenly and often in the East Mojave, and I keep a pair of workman's goggles handy above the motorcycle's dashboard for use when I arrive at Siberia in a dust storm and need some protection for the eyes while setting up camp. My Schuberth helmet provides outstanding dust protection, though it's a bit bulky to wear around camp.
