After a fun, level half hour on the old Ivanpah railway, it's time to climb down and hike cross-country over to Willow Wash

I take a break at the Nipton general store for chips and iced tea, and I fill my water supply to the max
One of the women working there remembers me from last year.
I learn that a major plumbing problem under repair has temporarily closed the café and showers, so I unfortunately won't be coming back for a shower later during this trip. I buy a couple of Fat Tire beers for later :)
