I take a look back at Primm as I leave town; I considered riding on the freeway for a smoother ride toward Nipton

After all the traffic and activity around Primm, it's nice to be out on a lonely dirt road and getting started with this year's trip. Glad to not be on the freeway, especially with a headwind. Sometimes I like riding on the big roads, but today I'm itching to get away from all that.
