Tuesday March 3, 2020 Mojave Road Trail, Mojave desert, California
Looking for the trail head
We left Quartzsite bright and early at 11 and headed North. We stopped to get Marty a new tire for his van and did some shopping for eats too.
We decided to go back out to the main road and start over but on the way I advised Marty to stop if he saw anyone in the few camps we went by on the way in. We spotted an old guy at one of the camps and drove on in and asked where we were and where was the trail head.
Yes we were on the right road but we needed to veer further north to pick up the trail.
Another dead end
The trailhead sign
A guy drove up in his side by side so I questioned him about where the road was. Just down the road a bit there was a turn I saw. He said take that one up onto the ridge and you will find the sign that says Mojave Road Trail.. That was good info. It pays to talk with folks that have been here before, helping us keep on track.
Tomorrow we’ll continue on up the trail and see where we end up. Patti got a phone lock here so I’ll try to post this blog in the morning.
Nice day exploring around looking for the trail.
