It's 17h20, so I leave Tough Nut Mine and begin the hike back to camp, passing through the slot excavated into the hillside

A little further, I pull over to eat a Clif bar and enjoy the views; something on my bike has started to rub loudly
The great views over Ivanpah Valley will disappear shortly as I begin to climb between the hills through a pass. It's not immediately apparent why my saddlebags are rubbing against the bike; they haven't come loose.
