We could have gone all Interstate highway from Las Vegas to the Coachella Valley, but what would be the fun in that? Sometimes you just have to take the back roads. Being natives of the Gulf South, deserts are about as familiar to us as moonscapes. So naturally we cut through the Mojave National Preserve just to see what we could see. Here are a few of those sights.
Mojave National Preserve
Old Kelso Post Office
Kelso Jail (not a pleasant thought, especially in August. It was used until 1985.)
Lunch counter at the Kelso visitor’s center (which used to be a railroad workhouse).
Old Southern California railway maps at the Kelso visitor’s center
