I prepare my backpack for the day and begin by walking down the short steep hill into the gulley behind Mid Hills campground

I begin the gradual descent down Macedonia Canyon Road, Mojave National Preserve
I'll drop down about 750 feet over about 2.5 miles. Of course, the road is rather sandy, since it runs down a wash, and my fat tires hiss while they ski downwards. I slip and fall off the bike while riding through a sand trap.
