I pull in at the road to Chicken Water Spring and try my cell phone; it works here as hoped
I call in to change my outgoing message, so that callers know I'm alive and well somewhere out here. Chicken Water Spring was a possible destination, but I've decided to camp at cooler, higher Mid Hills campground and hike down later instead.
The gentle curve of the landscape in the background is Cima Dome, which can be seen from many locations in Mojave National Preserve, but not while on it.
