The six-mile ride down the Cima Road hill to the Cima Store, 800 feet below, is a blast With a bit of sadness, I pack up and leave my Cima Dome campsite to mark the last day of this Mojave National Preserve tripThumbnailsTo my left while descending Cima Road are views across the valley to the Butcher Knife Canyon area of the New York MountainsWith a bit of sadness, I pack up and leave my Cima Dome campsite to mark the last day of this Mojave National Preserve tripThumbnailsTo my left while descending Cima Road are views across the valley to the Butcher Knife Canyon area of the New York MountainsWith a bit of sadness, I pack up and leave my Cima Dome campsite to mark the last day of this Mojave National Preserve tripThumbnailsTo my left while descending Cima Road are views across the valley to the Butcher Knife Canyon area of the New York MountainsWith a bit of sadness, I pack up and leave my Cima Dome campsite to mark the last day of this Mojave National Preserve tripThumbnailsTo my left while descending Cima Road are views across the valley to the Butcher Knife Canyon area of the New York MountainsWith a bit of sadness, I pack up and leave my Cima Dome campsite to mark the last day of this Mojave National Preserve tripThumbnailsTo my left while descending Cima Road are views across the valley to the Butcher Knife Canyon area of the New York Mountains

On the way down, I pass a small group of police and rangers investigating a car wreck whose driver is nowhere to be found. To my surprise, I have a significant headwind pushing against me as I ride down the hill (there was hardly any wind at all earlier).

The views of the Mid Hills straight ahead in the distance make me happy.
