It's too dark now, so I ride and walk the final couple of miles slowly by headlight

Riding down the gentle grade of Kelso-Cima Road to Kelso Depot
A strong north wind pushes me down the 3.5-mile, 400-foot descent and I exceed 30 miles per hour for a while. It is hotter here in the valley and I pass a four-wheel-drive group stopped for a shady break under the railway tracks.
