Introducing Mojave Desert
The Mojave Desert covers a vast region, from urban areas on the northern edge of LA County to the remote, sparsely populated country of the Mojave National Preserve. Most people just pass through corners of the desert in Death Valley or Las Vegas, but there’s a lot more worth stopping for here.
The Upper Mojave is a harsh land, with sporadic mining settlements and vast areas set aside for weapons and aerospace testing. Driving around Mojave town, you might mistake it for a huge international airport, but all those airliners are actually in storage, since the dry desert air minimizes the deterioration.

Death Valley National Park
The name itself evokes all that is harsh, hot and hellish – a punishing, barren and lifeless place of Old Testament severity.
