The tip of one of the old lava flows lies a short distance ahead

After a mile or so, the road rises out of the wash and I have just enough traction to resume riding
It's too dark to see details, but I can tell that I've exited the canyon and reached Devil's Playground. I see a side road that might be the road that crosses Devil's Playground and leads to Sands, but it dead-ends at another transmission tower.
