East of Barstow

Explorers looking for adventure.
They find it.
 Sunset: The Explorers are on their way home and it's time for us to set up camp.
Sunrise over the Mojave.
Looking north from our camp. Cady Mountains in distance.
A dormant volcano is our neighbor.
Another angle and our friend's camp comes into view.
The cloud of dust in the center of this photo marks the spot of one of many explosions we observed to south of our camp in the MCAGCC.
 After breakfast we drove on to the Kelso Dunes. Hiked to the top, the first time, back in 1990.
Our next stop was the Kelso Depot. Very cool to see the depot fully restored and open. After it closed in 1985 it was boarded up and spent two decades in limbo.
 We walked down the shaded veranda of the restored depot
 and visited the "The Beanery" for lunch.

 Heading west we made a quick detour to Zzyzx.
The answer to the question.
 Rubiconer's wave goodbye.
Last photo before we head for home. Soda Lake in the background.
