It's time to go
This morning we packed up and hit the road. We have finished the wine country phase of our trip and now it's time to head to the desert. Our original plan was a short road day to Tehatchapi, about 40 miles east of Bakersfield. What we didn't realize is that it sits at 4000 feet and there was snow there. Since we could see snow back in Michigan we decided to keep moving. Our next plan was to stop after a rest area lunch in the town of Boron. Well let's just say Boron was Boring!!! So back on the road to 4 corners and then a right turn to head south. We are staying at a campground in Adelanto. We will have a short driving day tomorrow to Joshua Tree National Park. We are going to stay in one of the primitive campgrounds there for a few days. Then it's on to Slab City.
