Day 6: 12.5 miles to a tendril of an alluvial fan (fun!) (74.5)
We dropped a couple thousand feet today and into dry desert shrubbery again. It gave us a break from the wind but I long ...
... accident where an RV had appeared to have lost control (poss strong cross winds) and there were toilet pans, beds, clothes, food etc all over the road. Their vacation spoiled !!Had a smoothie in the Mc D's in Mojave so I could find a campsite and found one that sounded ok. It was in the middle of nowhere and would not be able to find it without GPS.

... the Mojave Desert as we head toward Bakersfield. Looking at the weather forecast for the rest of the way home, we know we need to get a move on tomorrow to stay out of snow around Mt. Shasta and Grants Pass. Rather than try to push our way through the dark for hours and hours all night we decide to stop in Rosedale, a little suburb of Bakersfield, because once again we see the "RV Park" sign along the road.
Although it was nearly 5pm, it didn't seem to take long for us to arrive at our overnight stop in Tehachapi. Mum got out to have a look, but very quickly returned informing us that we were simply not staying there because it was too windy and too cold. So we descended down the hill again and found another campground by Lake Brite.
We set up camp and found that although it was cold and windy still, it was an improvement, and we had a fantastic outlook over the lake.
