Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / Fall 2010: Route 66 and Kelso Dunes Wilderness Bicycle Camping / Day 5: Day hike across Broadwell Dry Lake and to Broadwell Natural Arch, Bristol Mountains, Kelso Dunes Wilderness Area 79

An excellent sunny and brisk day for another hike into the Bristol Mountains, this time to the Broadwell Natural Arch (high of 49 degrees F). I won't see any people today.

Due to the cool weather, I'll only drink two litres of water all afternoon. An apple, three energy bars and some almonds keep me going. 15.8 hiking miles with about 1300 feet of elevation gain.
