I ride into Mojave National Preserve up Kelbaker Road away from Baker, California ThumbnailsPosts mark the beginning of a Wilderness area at the base of Kelbaker HillsThumbnailsPosts mark the beginning of a Wilderness area at the base of Kelbaker HillsThumbnailsPosts mark the beginning of a Wilderness area at the base of Kelbaker HillsThumbnailsPosts mark the beginning of a Wilderness area at the base of Kelbaker Hills

I apparently forgot my helmet on the Greyhound bus, so I bought a hat at the general store in Baker before leaving town so that I'd have something on my head during the trip.

A tailwind is pushing me nicely. Around the 10-mile point, which looks like the end of the road in this image, Kelbaker Road turns sharply to the right and continues into the heart of Mojave National Preserve.

I turn left at that point and set up camp at the base of one of the Kelbaker Hills there.
