The road I came in on last night is just behind the tent. The meadow here at 4600 feet was presumably used for cattle grazing, given the absence of native vegetation, except for joshua trees.

Although it looks flat here, the meadow slopes gently down toward the Ivanpah Valley and Morning Star Mine Road. The subtle curve of Cima Dome forms a backdrop in this view.
