I'm back on the train-track road, but this time a few miles of it are paved, and called Nipton-Desert Road

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.
