I take note of this light-pink Mojave Desert native thistle: Cirsium neomexicanum

Just outside Primm is one of the entrances to the Ivanpah Dry Lake recreation area
Ivanpah Dry Lake is mostly used for wind-sailing. Regulations state "non-motorized use only," so it might be a fun place to ride a bicycle too. I don't have time for that today, nor do I have a permit, so I continue on toward Nipton.
