I finish up the "scenic loop" and stop near the exit. I need to determine where to next. I had done everything planned so far.
I had the rough idea of heading towards the Mojave National Preserve. I pull out the Atlas and notice a trail that will be a nice short-cut.
It starts as an easy graded road. Obviously this will be a fast short-cut.
I climb out of the wash I was riding in to get this panoramic view behind me. You can even see Red Rock Canyon.

I had to remove some layers and change to my summer gloves here. Riding a rough trail is so much warmer than asphalt.
