I left the Mojave National Preserve at 0700 this morning in warmer temperatures than of late. I managed 13 miles prior to lunchtime when the RV picked me up and we drove to what I can only describe as a "Mini Las Vegas" called Wild Bills. It's about 30 miles south of Las Vegas itself.
The majority of the morning was spent on a sandy track full of lizards, snakes and a couple of tortoises. Only another 19 miles to do today and I'll be within touching distance of Las Vegas.
