Dear Mojave Desert...
Dear Mojave Desert,
You are beautiful, but you are cruel. Your lack of water is uninviting, your bipolar weather is obnoxious, and don't even get me started on the sand! The way it crawls into my shoes & burns my feet is straight up offensive. To be frank, I totally understand why the PCTA is having the trail rerouted around you next year.
That being said, tomorrow will be our last day together. Then Little Dipper & I will be moving on to bigger & better scenery. We will do our best to only remember the good times we had with you. Your lovely Joshua Trees, epic sunsets & all of the trail angels who made our experience bearable will always hold a special place in our hearts.
