29 Palms to Las Vegas & on to Yosemite

On Wed May 23 Driving from Palm springs to Joshua Tree -then short loop into National Park and back into 29 Palms. From there going to Mohave National Preserve via Amboy , Kelso, Cima and hit Hwy 15 into LAs Vegas - Returning from Las Vegas on Sat May 26 on 15 to Baker, Barstow, Bakersfield, Fresno , up Hwy 41 to Fish Camp.

For May 23 - food & gas suggestions through Mohave? Is Roy's in Amboy re-opened yet? Anything in Kelso? We'll gas up in 29 Palms and can grab a lunch before we go - but Roys looked interesting if its going yet. Somebody mentioned should see Amboy Crater on a previous post - is it easily accessible.

Not too sure on return but looks like Baker & Barstow would have food - any great stops?

Thanks

You'll automatically see Amboy Crater. it looks like a volcano that blew it's top off. You can drive down a dirt road then take an hour or two to hike to the top, You can hike around to the back side and enter it easily.

Stop at the Kelso train depot and see how the NPS has spent millions of our tax dollars refurbishing. They have picnic tables and it serves as a visitor center.

The most expensive gasoline is in Baker. Every national chain fast food place is available in this town.

There is also gasoline available at Primm where the off-ramp is for the casino hotels.

Barstow has more than a dozen gas stations on Main street within a mile of the East Main street off-ramp for I-15. The cheapest one I found there was the Circle K.
