This spot on the Barber Peak Loop Trail is just high enough for me to see all the way across Gold Valley toward my camp

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!
