It’s our last day in the Mojave National Preserver – our final boondocking site for the next 6 weeks. Before we leave though we check out the Rings Trail near Hole in the Wall Campground. It’s a short but scenic and exciting 1.6 mile round trip hike through a slot canyon. Metal rings drilled into the walls are required to climb up a couple steep sections.

Our time in the Mojave National Preserve has been very special and has become one of our top free camping locations. However, there is one thing in high abundance at the preserve that we hate – cholla cacti!!

    I have never been to Carl’s Bad Caverns, but have been to Mitchell’s. A lot smaller then Carl’s. I have heard.

    You kids are so delightful to watch you are great together. I drove a 18 wheeler all over the 48 states and Canada solo since 1988 now I have an older motorhome to go where I couldn't go in truck. Stay safe.

    I hiked the Rings Trail last week. You are correct that the first one needs another ring! I had to turn sideways and push off both sides at the top.

    I hiked that trail with my best friend 2 years ago. It was one of the best days I ever had ever

    That visitor center was likely closed for the season and they were doing some renovations/maintenance (which would explain the fencing and the cones to keep vehicles away from the flagpole and some other areas). But what do I know… I wasn't there; that's just a guess on my part. Good video! Thanks for taking us along and safe travels!

    Edited to add: OMG! The babies were SO SWEET in this video. I mean, NOW I KNOW where Sweetie gets her name. Even your kitty was playful and participating. hahahaha

    8:10 Do you know the origin of those writings? Are they from sometime recent but made to look old?

    Edit: I'm dumb. You answered it in your video at 10:45. Petroglyphs.

    You guys would like Bandelier National Monument if you're back in northern New Mexico (if you haven't been there already) 🙂

    Caves?!?
    You need to go to Kentucky! Mammoth cave (longest cave system in the world) and numerous other caves. We spent a week there going on cave tours.

    I like the convenience to town with your new location. Plus there appears to be several areas whereas one can be tucked away affording a bit of privacy or personal space with some desert shrubs

    Not sure when you recorded this but if you're headed over now, be careful going over the passes. Here in the lowlands we're getting tons of rain. My front yard is like a swamp. Higher elevations are getting pounded with snow. I90 is very snowy and foggy from the pictures.
    Safe travels and Merry Christmas⛄🎄🎅

    I did that hike 21 years ago with my wife and kids. My youngest daughter was 18 months old and she was in a baby back pack. Talk about tough… But it was awesome!!! So glad you found this trail. I had heard that they shut down that trail several years ago. There is a cave nearby that trail which was definitely closed after earthquakes in the 90's. But you might want to check into it. Drive safe back up to Washington!!!
    Merry Christmas,
    Pat

    We certainly get what you are saying. We love boondocking and love watching your videos showing all these great boondocking spots. We will miss our family for the holidays but we do love staying in southern AZ. Safe travels, friends! By the way, you are right Cholla is the bane of our boondocking existence. 😉

    Ok… whose creative idea was it to stage the backing away from one cactus to only back into another cactus scene? Not saying it didn't work… I'm just curious who thaught that one up.

    This a form of “via Ferrata”, by iron, climbing. If you like this there is the coolest climb ever in WV up Nelson Rock, where you are carabined to a cable and you make a shear climb of 3-4 hours. Done it three times and it is amazing. Beautiful scenery. I think you guys like the west the best, more boondock sites.

    Now that you have experienced those cholla cactus I strongly recommend you rent and watch the movie “Splinters.”

    Your choice of locations and your nature filmography are the best on the net. Some channels spend all their time fiddling around with their rv and never show us any location stuff. (You know who.) Fate unbound seldom disappoints. Loved Sweetie snoozing on the bed in the background while Jenny was talking. Love you guys as always and happy holidays from somewhere in the outskirts of Chicago.
