|Rest stop north of Bakersfield|
Our destination is Calico Ghost Town east of Barstow up in the hills. Once is was home to the largest silver mine in the west! Now a county park and quite nice. We arrived without reservation and found a campsite with our headlights. Setting up basic camp takes only 15 minutes then we were off exploring in the dark. Location provided shelter from the driving desert winds. We needed to find a gas station capable of handling Allegra and and Mr. Toad at the same time but we found one nearby where we will gas up both vehicles Saturday then park Allegra nearby while we wait for Union Pacific 844 to arrive in Yermo around 10:30 with some friends on it. but that is the next story.
