7 Bros On The Mojave Road
Day 2 Part 2


As John and Matt vanished into the distance desert road, the rest of us packed up our rigs soon to follow in their tracks. Several vehicles have driven on by from our stationary position, waving as they passed by.

Rey, Jerry and Jim took the led toward Kelso Cima road, crossing it to re-enter the dirt Mojave Road Trail. Jeff and Alex caught up with them seeing Jerry out by the trailhead plaque at the beginning of the dirt entrance.

Entering the road ourselves, I notice the haze around the distance Marl Mountain.

[image]

It soon became apparent the roller coaster nature of this part of Mojave Road as we dipped up and down, this action would go on till we neared Marl Springs.

[image]
Jeff had to stop in order to get his anti-sway disconnected; the nature of roller coasting was getting too much for him and his rig.

The rest of the group kept going, will catch up in a little while.
While Jeff worked on disconnecting his sway bar, I took some photos of this thorny cactus.

[image]

[image]
Once the sway was off, we made tracks to catch up, as it was they were waiting for us near the turn off for Marl Springs.

[image]

Shorty after crossing Powerline Rd. our caravan made another pit stop.

[image]

[image]

At this point, we’re about a mile or so from the Mojave Mail Box and would be there shortly.

Don’t over look a rather odd display near the mail Box

[image]

We all put our “John Henry’s” in the book and moved further down the road, it wasn’t long before we came head on with opposing off roaders. Matt with his power of persuasion and the sight of three much larger vehicles, well they moved over.

[image]

We finally hit a sandy river bottom with layered rock edging; we got into fast mover speed for several miles.

[image]


[image]

We did make a stop during our racetrack pace; Matt had enough on his bike and was ready to hang it up. During the time we waited for Matt to catch up, a Jeep with young people in it came by. I had asked them where they had come from; it was Afton Camp ground, which ment to me that Soda Dry Lake was passable.
Crossing Kelbaker Rd. placed us into the home stretch for Soda Dry Lake.

[image]

[image]

Even after, we got to the edge of the lakebed; it still looked wet with the ever-lowering sun reflecting off it.

[image]

[image]

[image]
Water was pooled along our beaten path as we headed to Travelers Monument.

[image]

[image]

Once at Traveler's Monument, everyone exit their vehicle and stretch their legs. Jeff was the first one to climb the mount to read the secret writing on the plaque. We won’t tell the secret of the plaque.

[image]

A few more photos and off to the end of the day. We stopped at a nice spot on the edge of the sand dunes.

[image]

[image]

[image]

Rey and Jim would be departing from our group after dinner; it was great having to meet them. The rest of us settled in for the night with the moon on its ghostly journey.

[image]

Thanks for following along, one more part to go, will have it asap.
