One of several long freight trains passes by as I slowly rise up Kelso-Cima Road

I start riding up lonesome Brant Road toward Cima, my next stop, and a train passes
This is a road of aural contrast: intense noise whenever a train passes a few feet away on my left, followed by the silence of the Mojave Desert wilderness. The effect is not unpleasant and stressful like a road with constant automobile traffic.
