I'm up at first light and already blasting down the highway when the sunlight first hits the dunes.
The BNSF Railroad passes through the Ivanpah Valley.
I take Morning Star Mine Road in the morning.
Since no other traffic is out here, I take a break in the middle of the highway.
The wind really starts to pick up and it was 31 degrees. I'm freezing my ass off again!
I love the feeling of blasting down these long lonely highways.
I made it to Searchlight again and stopped at the Terrible's Casino for fuel and McDonald's breakfast.
This was the first fuel stop since Las Vegas. (I love the Safari Tanks!)
There was a very stiff breeze, meaning I wasn't warming up standing around in the parking lot.
I'm gonna be fighting this wind all day.
Not far from Searchlight I turn off onto...
Christmas Tree Pass Road.
