About a mile into Mojave National Preserve, I pass a sandy unpaved road (Old Kelso Road) that goes where I'm going today

Walking the last half mile up Old Kelso Road back to the tent at dusk
The light sand drifts across the road here look almost like a dusting of snow. This road probably doesn't get traffic every day, but fresh tire tracks have obliterated some of my footprints from this morning.
