Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2007: Death Valley National Park bikepacking / Day 13: Tecopa Hot Springs to Baker, where I'll catch Amtrak tomorrow to San José 10

There are moments on the ride from Tecopa Hot Springs to Baker on Highway 127 when nothing seems to move, no matter how much one pedals.

I love the climb over Ibex Pass. The descent that follows into and across the valley of Dumont Dunes is pure pleasure.

I have no film left, so I use a few photos taken on the way up Highway 127 earlier in the trip, looking back, to relive my favourite part of the return ride to Baker, marking the trip's finale. 55 bicycle miles.

I'll see you next year.
