I'm hoping to continue hiking along the ridge, but it looks like there may be a drop-off beyond those two junipers

My new road, which I've not been on before, immediately drops into a sand-and-gravel drainage area
Uh oh, I hope this isn't one of these impossible desert roads. I consider turning around and following the longer, but more predictable route around this area, but decide to continue a bit further first, in case the road improves.
