A family of small birds (probably Cactus wrens) flies away as I hike up the grown-in remains of an old desert road

Back on a dirt road (Nipton-Moore Road): straight ahead are the McCullough Mountains; I wish I had time to head up there today
I explored a corner of the southern McCullough Mountains on my 2011 trip out here. Today, I'm headed to Nipton, that blit of buildings at centre-left in the photo. I'm still riding along the railway tracks, which are just outside the photo on the right.
