Mojave Road Expedition in March
« on: February 10, 2015, 08:26:16 PM »
Mojave Road Expedition March 2015

In March I am planning a multiday trip along the 140 mile long Mojave Road in the eastern Mojave Desert.  The trip will include rocky terrain, mud flats, long sandy stretches, and river crossing and beautiful desert scenery.  Most of the trip is easy but a few locations require four wheel drive.  There are no facilities, but numerous access points to I-15 occur along the road.  The road, which starts at the Colorado River near Laughlin NV and ends at a camp ground after crossing the Mojave River, is the historic crossing of the Mojave Desert and is now in the Mojave Preserve.
The trip will take 2-3 days, but you can exit to I-15 at numerous locations. Except for the last night we will camp at undesignated camp sites.  The date is yet to be decided, but we will meet in Laughlin on a Friday night and start the next morning.
Good guides include Mojave Road Guide, by Dennis G. Gasebier, Mojave Desert Heritage and Cultural Association, and Tails Illustrated map 256 Mojave National Preserve.
If you are interested please contact me directly alan_mayo@live.com  801 472-3139
