In the northeast corner of the Mojave National Preserve you leave the vast Kelso Dunes and come across a low ridge of black lava rock that seems to stretch on forever (check it out on Google Maps). We parked and hiked about a mile to the edge of the lava beds. I was impressed that Trey was able to climb/scramble up the dark, jagged rocks to the top. Once we stood up there (only about 12 feet up) he began to do what all little boys love to do – throw rocks. When I was ready to head back to the car, it was like pulling teeth – “One more, Daddy! Let me throw one more!”
