43rd Mojave Road Rendezvous
7-10 October 2021
The forty-second annual Mojave Road Rendezvous is drawing closer. This year, Rendezvous will be over Columbus Day weekend 7-10 October 2021. We are looking forward to seeing you! We are offering field trips and several workshops and activities. However, the heart of this year's Rendezvous will be a memorial service to honor the memory of Dennis Casebier, our friend, and the founder of the MDHCA. The memorial will begin on Saturday afternoon at 3 pm and is open to the public.

From time to time the water level in two places along the Mojave Road within Afton Canyon has become deeper than some people are comfortable driving through. There have been reports of the water running as high as 30+ inches. These two crossings are described in the Mojave Road Guide as at miles 120.5 and 121.5 – a quarter mile south of the BLM Campground.

Since September 2018, the Mojave Desert Heritage and Cultural Association has published two new books; The Mojave Road in 1863 edited by Jeff Lapides and Postcards from Mecca edited by Ann Japenga and Warner V. Graves III.
The book by Jeff Lapides, The Mojave Road in 1863: The Pioneering Photographs of Rudolph d’Heureuse, highlights photographs taken by d’Heureuse in 1863-1864 during his travels along the Mojave Road—from Drum Barracks at the Port of Los Angeles to the mines of Eldorado Canyon on the Colorado River. These are the first photographs of the Mojave Road and of the Mojave Desert. Also included are never-before-published maps drafted by d’Heureuse.
