Dust on rack saddles

Last weekend we went kayak-camping -- this photo is taken at 8000' (where's the water!). Just a note - when traveling any distance on bumpy dirt roads, be sure to clean any dust from your rack saddles before you load up your boats. The dust acts like fine sandpaper and can eat through your finish if you aren't careful.
