Tuesday September 29, 2020 Stillwater Mountains, Nevada
Once we got it going this morning we broke camp around 11 as we are trying to take it easy and not rush around like we did in the olden days.
We drove on in to town to top off our gas tanks for the next part of the trip. Then we got back on highway 50 and headed east for a bit looking for our turn off at a place called Salt Wells.
Where’s the road
We made it to Salt Wells but couldn’t find the left turn off road we needed so drove on past it and eventually had to turn around and hunt for the road on the way back and finally found the dirt road turn off we needed to head up to the Stillwater Mountain Range.
Most of the time we just barely knew where we were going so we stopped and checked the maps a lot, but still most of the time we weren’t real sure where we were but hey that’s exploring.
Need an early camp spot
After resting a bit we started to look around a bit to see what was around us. There was a little black looking hole across the hill from us we thought might a be a mine tunnel but didn’t plan to check it out.
Checking out the black hole
Tomorrow we’ll continued on this road and see where it takes us. We’d like to get up to some higher mountains if we can and if we take the right roads. The maps we have for this area aren’t too good so we could end up anywhere.
