I leave the bliss of my Nipton tent cabin before sunrise for the 12-mile ride to Primm, purposefully, as if it were a work day
The sun is just barely starting to appear as I ride past the old corral on Nipton-Desert Rd, a bit before the old pavement runs out. My feet and fingers are already really cold! Since I'm not a morning person, I always forget how cold mornings can be!
