My original plan was to ride down this road just to see if Bathtub Spring, near the base of the mountains to the left, has any water to offer. Instead of that scenic detour, I'll head directly toward Keystone Canyon to prevent further possible delays.

(There are two springs in Mojave National Preserve named Bathtub Spring.)
