Desert Driving

 Following our overwhelming stay at the Grand Canyon we embarked on our only significantly long drive of our great western adventure. We made our way into California during our seven hour drive and drove through the Mojave Desert.  Guess what?  It was hot!

We took this drive on Leif's birthday and to celebrate we stopped at Calico Ghost Town.  I thought he might like to see something that is a whole lot older than him and this silver rush city established in 1881 seemed to fit the bill!  After wandering around the town, we settled in at a hotel for a quick stop over in Barstow and the kids swam until they couldn't take it anymore!  These guys sure did deserve a break...neither one of them complained even once about our long drive!
