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

Oh look, a lost set of four bright-blue ballons tied together, stuck to a young creosote bush, framed by a Kelso Dunes backdrop
These balloons might be forgotten garbage today, but there once was a time when a group of smiling, laughing people stood around them. I stuff the balloons in my backpack for disposal tomorrow at Kelso Depot with the rest of my trash.
