With Pachalka Spring's greenery behind me, I walk back to my bike and look for a spot to set up my tent
I notice an elderberry tree down in the wash, which I didn't know grows in the Mojave Desert (I have one in my backyard). Then I scare a bunch of quail and two small black-throated black-tailed birds on the way up the hill.
I set up my tent in a decent clearing along Pachalka Spring Road, presuming that there won't be any significant traffic passing by while I camp here for a couple of days.
