Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2009, Fall: Mojave National Preserve / Day 4: Hike to Cornfield Spring on the west side of the Providence Mountains, Mojave National Preserve /
Sitting here in deep shade pumping water from Cornfield Spring makes me feel like I'm somewhere other than the Mojave Desert
It smells green and moist here. A few hundred feet away is typical parched and rocky Mojave Desert terrain. Photographs don't capture how it feels to simultaneously experience these two contrasting landscapes; you have to be there.
