Mojave Road Historical Run
Submitted by Bob Besch on Wed, 12/26/2018 - 11:12
A Tent camping History trip led by Mike Whittington. The land was taken from Mexico by the US in 1848 following the Mexican–American War, and in early 1858 the Mohave Trail became the Mojave Road, a wagon road connected to the newly pioneered Beale's Wagon Road across northern New Mexico Territory from Fort Defiance to Beale's Crossing on the Colorado River where it linked up with the Mojave Road. Wagon trains of settlers coming west on the Santa Fe Trail, soon followed Beale's Wagon Road and the Mojave Road into Southern California.
