I remount the 10-ton bike and continue my trek up Kelbaker Road as it winds around the edge of lava flows

I reach Cedar Wash, cross it, then climb up the other side and look back across Cedar Wash to the south
I'm at about 4525 feet elevation and have expansive views down toward Kelso Dunes, that tan patch in the distance. The pointy ridges just below my hat brim are around Macedonia Canyon and Chicken Water Spring, where I've already hiked on this trip.
