About eight miles down from the summit, I fly around the curve near the Kelbaker Road lava flows

Heading up Jackass Canyon Road, I see a car coming toward me!
This is a surprise because I haven't seen a soul since leaving the pavement of Kelbaker Road two days ago. As the car approaches, I see that it sports government license plates. The driver waves at me as he passes.
