Across California: Zzyzx

Clean clothes for Tom after 11 days.

On Wednesday, we left Zzyzx, where we have rested a day to learn about its fascinating history. You can find out a lot about Zzyzx from the Wikipedia article. Tom's wife Madeleine will join us. She is full of trepidation, never having done any desert backpacking.

We're planning to reach  Afton Canyon campground in two days. The Union Pacific RR, the Mojave River, the old Government Road, and an off-road-vehicle open area all use this corridor. I hope there is room for us.
