I breathe a sigh of relief that my chosen campsite is unoccupied by humans or a bug festival and is sitting here waiting for me.

When I discovered this spot during my last Mojave National Preserve bike trip four months ago, I thought it would be a great spot to camp and use as a base for a day hike. So here I am again; it's nice to be back.

It took me over 1.5 hours to come up the dirt road to here because I walked the bike so much while enjoying the scenery. I drank a full two litres of water just on this road; I guess I was a bit dehydrated from rationing my water earlier today.
