Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2009, Fall: Mojave National Preserve / Day 5: Hike to Rex Mine and west edge of the Providence Mountains, Mojave National Preserve 81

Camp stays set up while I go for a hike over to the old Rex Mine. I improvise my route after that and end up in "West Edgar Canyon #3" on the west edge of the Providence Mountains. Great scenery all day long and I still have a bad cold. 10.8 hiking miles and 1575 feet of elevation gain. I drink only 2.5 litres of water while hiking (in warmer weather I could drink double that) and eat two energy bars. Temperatures recorded in Baker, CA: a high of 69F, low 37F.
