Sunset Over Mojave


First night camp was at a rest stop near Boron, CA. in the Mojave desert after 415 miles of driving.  Breakfast in Barstow after getting fuel at a Food for Less store where I replaced the brand new jar of peanut butter I bought at Safeway last week that turned out to be dated "Best by October 11, 2012"!  I guess Planter's peanut butter is not a fast seller.  A reefer truck woke me up at 5:30 in the morning.  That and yesterday's drive caught up with me and I had to pull off for an hour nap before crossing  the Colorado River and entering Arizona...finally.  Called it a day in Kingman, Arizona.

Awww--you're in my old hood! Morning on the Mojave can't be beat but you seem to have passed on Newberry, Daggett and Yermo--real highlights. Enjoy Arizona.

what a splendid ending to the day. even the word Mojave is beautiful.
I hope Sinbad is behaving himself.
Too bad about the peanut butter; I've learned too to check the expiration date on jars/cans/everything. Just a suggestion - almond butter is a healthier choice.
I hope Sinbad is behaving himself. A few photos of the little guy now and then would be a true treat.
Stay safe and keep your eyes on the road. Take good care now you guys.

A "reefer" truck at 5:30AM? Big 10-4 on that, buddy!
Guess it is never too early to catch a buzz...
