The desert has an expansive, yet subtle beauty to it. I am always impressed with the diversity and uniqueness of tis beauty each time I venture into its harshness. On this particular trip, we chose to cross the Mojave by way of the old #mojaveroad trail, a stagecoach route used by early pioneers. This 140mi trail cuts through the heart of the Mojave, treating its passengers to mountainous vistas, rocky terrain, and unforgiving weather conditions. Even in the winter, when the region is bearable, the sun radiates intensely and the darkness brings near-freezing temperatures. It's hard to imagine crossing in a covered wagon more than a century ago... even without hostile Indians trying to kill you.
