Mojave National Preserve Part II

Conitnuing on with the story.... :)

Our next stop had us at the Kelso Depot. It was an important stop along the rail for the desert community during its day. Build in 1912 or so then 'moderized' in 1923 it was about to the razed in 90's. It was saved and made into a visitor's center - it only reopened in Oct of 2005.

The view the depot has:

Again, there were abandoned buildings around. Perhaps one day they too will be restored and opened for visiting.

We left the park via the north - got gas in Baker. Stopped to look at part of the Mojave Trail (a 135 mile 4x4 road for hard core enthusiasts - we'll be doing this trail next year I think) We stopped at the Depot again - Sean went in and talked with the ranger there. She recommended we go to the Mid Hills Campground. Long drive. About an hour away. But off we went. It was certainly worth it.

We stopped at the Hole In The Wall visitor's center. Yes, that's the name! :D The ranger there was really nice and had us bring the dogs inside the gift shop while we all talked (I would have stood outside in the porch with them)

Due to a large fire that went through the area on June 22nd of 2005 (my birthday :D ) the camp ground was basically deserted. We had the whole place to ourselves. Being that it was Aug 1st probably had something to do with it too. ha

Doggies: "Where's Dinner???"

and the view from our camp site:

And the Long view - looking toward Las Vegas:

And. Night falls.


During the night we were visted by many coyotes. Leo and Solo barked them away.

Another web site concerning the Mountain Communities of the San Bernardino mountains. Thank you for visiting :o)
