Cedar Canyon Road is scenic, but I'm always so happy when I reach the junction of Black Canyon Road at 5000 feet
I take a break here to cool down and eat another Clif bar before continuing up Black Canyon Road to Mid Hills campground, pretending to photograph things while I linger here. A woman in an RV passes by, looking for directions and we chat for ten minutes.
She discovered Mojave National Preserve by chance on her trip and loves it here (she camped at Sunrise Rock near Cima Dome last night). However, the washboarded dirt roads here are difficult for her.
