I hike across the New York Mountains foothills back to my tent, slowly, to preserve energy, Mojave National Preserve

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!
