I recharge my cell phone and my headlight battery in the shower building before leaving Nipton

Almost 4 miles down Ivanpah Road, I pull into a wash and set up camp 1/10 mile in, concealed from the road; it's still cold here
I'm within walking distance of Bathtub Spring if I need more water tomorrow morning. It's noticeably chilly here too (in the 30s F), so I curl up in my sleeping bag early after making one last Backpacker's Pantry meal. I sleep well, happy day for me.
