I'm not always paying quite as much attention to the landscape here as I might, due to washboard texture of the road that occasionally requires my focus.

I'll rise slowly for the rest of the day from about 4100 at the junction of Cedar Canyon and Ivanpah Roads to about 5400 feet on Black Canyon Road near Mid Hills Campground.
