After the wonderful trip we had last time to the area west of the Ivanpah range, today we feel a lot like the proverbial chicken who crossed the road to see what's on the other side. That's right, this time we're headed for the east side of the Ivanpahs! There are several old mines and camps there that look like they'd be interesting to explore. Mohave will be joining us for the trip and coming out for the first day will be Guy and Alysia with their almost four month old little bundle of joy, Aiden. He's getting off to an early start as a desert explorer! There should be plenty to see over the next two days, including New Trail Camp, the Hillside Mine, the Hillside Oxide Copper Mine, the area around the Allured Cabin location and finally the old Kewanee Mine. The weather report looks a bit iffy but it's an absolutely gorgeous day today so let's get going. Just click on the photo link below and you'll be able to pull your recliner into line behind Mohave's truck and travel the virtual desert two tracks right along with us to this historic part of the Mojave National Preserve.
