After the craziness of completing my semester at the college, it was time to escape. A bike tour was not in the stars this winter, so we loaded up the camper and headed out the the great Southwest, the Mojave and Sonora deserts. First stop, the East Mojave Preserve. I won't reveal the exact location of any spot in these following entries. The desert is for exploring. Get a map and head out! The nights have been freezing, the days cool, perfect for a walk through sandy washes and the twisted arms of Joshua trees. We set out along an old Jeep track and eventually climbed a craggy ridge--windless, bright, perfect.
