The shade of cottonwood trees make the 1914 Mission-style Goffs Schoolhouse a soothing stop along this sun-drenched stretch of highway. It stands as part of the best-preserved pioneer settlement in the Mojave Desert. Browsing the black-and-white photographs of hardscrabble Dust Bowl migrants gives an evocative glimpse into the tough life on the edge of the Mojave.
