On the outskirts of Essex, CA, I stop to check out an old abandoned gas station and its empty sign
Date: May 29, 2012, 18h59
Riding Nipton Road, just a few more miles until I reach Nipton village over there
The final few hot-and-sweaty miles ahead before I reach Nipton are slightly uphill. Desire to reach the destination in the heat of the day always increases along this stretch, but there's no way to get there more quickly!
