Walking Box Ranch Road is a decent dirt road that seems to have been covered with pavement long ago. Some folks I had chatted with at Nipton called it the "molasses road," referring to the road's surface.

I stop here to put on my outer shell and booties, to warm my cold feet.

The New York Mountains sit on the distant horizon, some 1100 feet higher from here.
