Day 104: Yucca Valley to Mojave National Preserve

We got off to a late start today and after getting gas and propane, we drove northeast for about 100 miles into Mojave National Preserve. It’s the third-largest unit of the National Park Service in the continental US.  The drive took us though the Mojave salt flats and the interesting ghost town of Amboy, where we saw its shoe tree.

The Preserve’s newsletter, which I downloaded before arriving, said that dispersed camping is allowed on the access road to the Kelso Dunes, so we drove there.  We got there after dark, but here’s what our site looked like the next morning:
