Tortoises shouldn't be touched, but they also shouldn't be left in a rocky road where a passing car might inadvertently crush it

I reach that stop sign in the middle of nowhere at the bottom of Morning Star Mine Road, at the junction of Ivanpah Road
I can see the town of Nipton at the distant mid-right, my destination today. I turn left here as most car traffic does. A right turn here would take me into the New York Mountains and past the old Ivanpah village, a nice trip that I've done several times.
