Dirt Road Diary- Joshua Tree / Old Dale Mining Road Part 2


So when we last left off we had been stuck behind an incredibly slow car and had finally made the turn onto Old Dale Mining Road. For about the first 30-45 minutes of the trip the road were sandy but smooth. So much that the girls both fell asleep. We eventually made it to the old cyanide tanks. All the kids woke up and we explored a bit..





 
We got back onto the roads and our trail went from smooth and sandy to steep, narrow and rocky and it was awesome.


At the top of a turn we saw this. Just sitting there. So of course we stopped for more exploring. We love abandoned buildings. 


Louie was stoked to find this bench with a fire pit. And then we noticed that the pan on the left was a make shift bathroom. GROSS.


So back on the road we go.


This was a fantastic trail. We really loved it. A great mix of easy and medium trails. A perfect birthday weekend adventure!
