This is the ride from Dantes View to the Borax Works near the Furnace Creek Park Headquarters. This was taken shortly after the beginning of the ride. I am descending the slope of the alluvial fan (deposts of sand, rock and gravel that form a skirt at the base of mountains from water erosion of the mountains). Alluvial fans have steep slopes. Just before this picture, Louise passed me and clocked me going 35 miles per hour - coasting! At times I had birds flying along side me at about the same speed.
