I decide that the best choice is to simply leave Kelso Dunes and its campers behind and head west down the power-line road

Shortly after 9h, an unusually early hour for me, I'm hiking south on Old Kelso Road toward Old Dad Mountain
Part of my route is a non-Wilderness corridor, so I could have chosen to ride my bike for part of the distance. It would be faster, but I'm in hiking mode today, and I may do some cross-country hiking through Wilderness areas where bikes aren't allowed.
