As I approach the train tracks, I pass the old Ivanpah General Store

There are also a few old pinyon pine trees along Pine Spring Rd: not a surprise given the name of this place
It's not even a hot day, but I'm already appreciating the brief shade as I hopefully get warmed up for this hike. The road is quite sandy in places, so I'm glad I didn't bother dragging the 10-ton bike any further last night.
