I savour a few final views from Dove Spring Peaks, then turn around and begin the hike back to camp

OK, time to start today's ride; I start riding down Nevada 164 into the grey clouds
Not only do I have a headwind, but it's a bit chilly today and it looks like it's raining on my route ahead (and I don't have a raincoat). I'm wearing my sweater, which I wouldn't expect to need in the Mojave Desert sunshine in late May.
