California's Golden Parks #144 - KELSO DEPOT
Huell attends the grand reopening of the Kelso Depot and not only tours the beautifully renovated and restored 1928 building, but talks with locals about its rich history. Its a true celebration as the Kelso Depot begins its new life as a museum and information center for the Mojave National Preserve.

Restored Kelso Depot in the Mojave Desert acts as a visitor center for the Mojave area. Awesome old desert train depot to explore and gives a bit of the history of the area. Restaurant in the depot was not functioning when i visited because there was not an operator so bring your own food!

Mojave Desert National Preserve California
A visit to Mojave National Preserve, California. Singing sand dunes, volcanic cinder cones, Joshua tree forests, and carpets of wildflowers are all found at this 1.6 million acre park. A visit to its canyons, mountains and mesas will reveal long-abandoned mines, homesteads, and rock-walled military outposts. Located between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Mojave provides serenity and solitude from major metropolitan areas.
Mojave National Preserve is a United States National Preserve located in the Mojave Desert of San Bernardino County, California, USA, between Interstate 15 and Interstate 40. The preserve was established October 31, 1994 with the passage of the California Desert Protection Act by the US Congress. Previously, it was the East Mojave National Scenic Area, under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management. Mojave National Preserve is vast. At 1,600,000 acres (650,000 ha), it is the third largest unit of the National Park System in the contiguous United States.
Natural features include the Kelso Dunes, the Marl Mountains and the Cima Dome, as well as volcanic formations such as Hole-in-the-Wall and the Cinder Cone Lava Beds. The preserve encloses Providence Mountains State Recreation Area and Mitchell Caverns Natural Preserve, which are both managed by the California Department of Parks and Recreation.
Impressive Joshua Tree forests cover parts of the preserve. The Cima Dome and Shadow Valley forests are the largest in the world. The defunct railroad depot and ghost town of Kelso are also found there. The depot is now the visitor center. The preserve is commonly traversed by 4 wheel drive vehicles traveling on the historic Mojave Road.
The climate varies greatly. Summer temperatures average 90 °F (32 °C), with highs exceeding 105 °F (41 °C). Elevations in the Preserve range from 7,929 feet (2,417 m) at Clark Mountain to 880 feet (270 m) near Baker. Annual precipitation varies from 3.37 inches (86 mm) near Baker, to almost 9 inches (230 mm) in the mountains. At least 25% of precipitation comes from summer thunderstorms. Snow is often found in the mountains during the winter.

Christmas 2012 Vacation - Part 1: Mojave National Preserve
On December 22, 2012, my wife and I went on a camping adventure in the Mojave National Preserve in California USA, the Grand Canyon Arizona, and Dead Horse State Park in Cottonwood, Arizona. The first day, we drove about 500 miles from San Jose to the Mojave National Preserve and car-camped at Hole In The Wall Campground near the preserve's information center. We drove the preserve the next day, driving about 100 miles in the process on Black Canyon Road, Wildhorse Canyon Road, Cedar Canyon Road, Kelso Cima Road, Kelso Dunes Road, Kelbaker Road, Interstate 40, and Essex Road. Sights included the Midhills Campground, the Kelso Depot and Beanery Deli, as well as the 700 foot high Kelso Dunes.
The Mojave National Preserve is a stunning geological area, particularly when it is not 115 degrees Fahrenheit in the shade. The National Park Service's Ranger staff is superb and give wonderful talks during the preserve's busy (cool weather) season. See the closing credits for the names of the staff that spent time with us explaining the area.
We found the campgrounds simply great and nearly empty in late December. The dirt roads had been recently plowed because of massive flash-flood damage a few weeks before - a storm dumped four inches of rain in an hour. Hence the roads were smoother and less wash-boarded (but still easily drive-able at 20 miles per hour and not requiring four-wheel drive) than I have previously seen them.

Baker, Mojave National Preserve's drive through
We'll be driving from Barstow to Saint George, Utah and would like to take a detour, scenic drive through Mojave National Preserve. I would take I-40 from Barstow and enter the park from Kelbaker Road.
I am drive through a small range of hills and drop down to near the Kelso Dunes. Stop at the Kelso Depot/museum/park headquarters, then take Kelso Cima Road to Cima and Cima Road over to I-15.
Off Cima Road is the largest Joshua Tree forest in the world. You can also stop at the Mojave Cross picnic area.
From Baker to the Kelso Depot is more about cinder cones and lava beds. Its nice, but I don't think as nice as coming in from I-40.
Whenever I do this route(quite often) I usually continue across I-15 on Cima Road, (which changes names to Excelsior Mine Road) into another part of the preserve, then take the dirt Kingston Road into Nevada with a final stop at the PioneerSaloon in Goodsprings. That can also be accessed via the road out of Jean/I-15.
Baker is located at (35.265099, -116.074768). Baker is located in the Mojave Desert at the junction of Interstate 15 and SR 127 (Death Valley Road).
Its elevation is approximately 930 feet (283.5 m) above sea level, which is much lower than either Barstow or Las Vegas, due to its location at the southern end of the Death Valley geological depression.
The Cronese Mountains are located southwest of the community. According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP covers an area of 2.7 square miles (7.0 km²), all of it land. Summer temperatures in Baker routinely exceed 110 °F (43.3 °C); 2007 saw a record of 125 °F (51.7 °C).
Baker was established in 1929 by Ralph Jacobus Fairbanks (1857–1942), who was an American prospector, entrepreneur, and pioneer who established several towns in the Death Valley area of California, including Fairbanks Springs (1904–05) and Shoshone (1910).
The 1.6 million-acre Mojave National Preserve is only one or two hours by car from Las Vegas, but it is a world apart, offering opportunity for solitude amid sweeping desert views of the east Mojave
