I turn back for another look at the Wild Horse Mesa area, which is still picking up a bit of sunset light

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.
