It's getting darker (and redder) by the minute as I follow a small drainage in the creosote-bush scrub on the way back to Nipton

Mid Hills campground to Nipton by bicycle, Mojave National Preserve (Day 8)
I ride down to Nipton for a shower, food and beer, to begin the second week of this trip. I was fearing heat down in Ivanpah Valley, but the cold-weather system makes for a nice ride. 41.7 bicycle miles, mostly downhill, from 5600 to 3030 feet elevation.
