Bloomington Cave

Late afternoon with a little time -- just enough for a quick run on the TW out towards the Bloomington Cave.

Road has been recently maintained. The lower part of this road by Bloomington (Navajo Drive) is in much better shape. The upper part by the cave has some ruts and loose rock, still very passable for any dual sport bike.




The map on page 2, post #17, shows the detail. Bloomington Cave itself is on Hollow Wash Road, just south of the word Hollow. This is about 2/3 of the elevation gain to the connection with the Mojave Desert Joshua Tree Scenic Backway (Apex Mine Road). There are several small cave signs from Navajo Drive in Bloomington so the route is easy to follow.


A new sign kiosk at the cave site.

Be prepared:




Watch out:




Creepy crawlies:




One of the entrances. Caving has never been my thing, although I'm sure it could be great with the right group.




Pine Valley Mountain in fading light. No snow yet. Boomer Hill in foreground.




Spectacular post-sunset color from dirt trails behind Green Valley, very close to St. George.




Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving weekend. Thanks for checkin' in. Ride safe!
