We traveled 1,802 miles over a period of almost seven weeks (it turns out that we were only one day short of seven). During this period, we had thirteen stopovers.
Top Pic: Entrance to Golden Dome cave. Some of the caves (lava tubes) have steps at the entrance, but most don't.
This place has been on our bucket list for some time & we’re glad that we finally arrived. I think I see some lava tube/cave exploring on the horizon.
When ”plan A” didn’t work out, we moved on to ”plan B”. Needless to say, that didn’t play out either. Down the road we found a great dispersed site at Rocky Point West - BLM on Eagle Lake. ”Plan C” rules!

Alabama Hills has been on our Bucket List for some time. We scored a scenic (but perhaps not that level) site just off Movie Road. Over 400 movies have been filmed in this area.
We a have sweet spot in Mesquite Spring campground. Unlike the overcrowded main campgrounds, there are only a few campers here each night.
This unique canyon is one of the few place where the Mojave River flows above ground. A good stopping spot not far from the highway.

One of the activities we are enjoying in SoCal is hiking. There is an amazing number of hikes available within driving distance from Jojoba Hills, and there’s BLM land just outside our parks gate that offers random single track dirt roads and trails to explore. Here’s a brief recap of the February...
