Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2009, Fall: Mojave National Preserve / Day 6: Cornfield Spring Road to west of Kelso Dunes by bicycle 27

I haven't seen people or pavement for a couple of days. That will change today as I move my campsite to somewhere west of Kelso Dunes, with a nice social stop at the Kelso Depot visitor centre along the way. A laid-back easy day with just only 16 bicycle miles and 900 feet elevation gain.

I drank two litres of water and ate no energy bars (but I did have homemade iced tea and crappy instant burritos at The Beanery in Kelso Depot during my break). Temperatures recorded in Baker, CA: high of 72F, low of 35F.
