Turquoise veins in rock at Trio Mine, Mojave National Preserve: copper, presumably

Just before I arrive at my bicycle at the end of Borrego Canyon Road, I run into a big herd of cows
The cows don't like me, and run away. I grab my bicycle, ride up to the visitor centre, recharge my cell phone and drench my sweaty self with cold water from the tap--sooo good. It's still almost 90F in the shade. I nibble on almonds and dried apricots.
