Try to make reservations for the Mitchell Caverns ahead of time if possible. They are in close proximity to the main highway and are such a popular tourist attraction the tours book up early even during the week. If you don't make the tour the view from the Cavern's parking lot is outstanding and makes a great lunch stop. Sounds like a great trip. :)

Normally I could go most any time during the week, I'm self employed. Unfortunately that week I have plans that would prevent me from going.

Please let me know if you do another run during the week in the future.

It' may be cold in Caruthers Canyon, it's snowed on us the last two times we camped there. A beautiful place.

Consider camping at Seventeenmile Point one night. It's right along the Mojave Road and you'll wake up to a beautiful view.

ralphie, I would like to join your group for the Mojave Trail run.
I live in Las Vegas and need to know where you and the others are going to meet.

I have made the Mojave Trail trip a number of times with other groups and have enjoyed
it more each time. Most of to other events have been for a weekend.

Man, I was just thinking about this! Too bad this will be during the week. I wanna try to get out there again in a few months. There's still just so much to see!

Thanks for the invite, but I can’t go that week.

BUT I do work half of the weekends every year and have a lot of weekdays off. Good to see other’s may be able to do weekday trips. I prefer to go with other’s, solo trips lack some of the fun.

Please anyone post up any others weekday trips you plan, I’ll try and do the same. 8-)
