Wednesday September 30, 2020 Stillwater Mountain Range Nevada
Leaky heater core
Just down the road from our camp we could see some white rocks around something so we stopped there to check it out. It turned out to be a big water valve from Mountain Wells and the rocks were to protect it. It didn’t appear to be in service anymore.
A main road
Traffic not much
Missed the jets bombing
Marty was ahead of me and drove up into the creek area and radioed not to come up as he was going to have a hard time turning around and getting back out so I waited for him to return and we had lunch here by an old mine.
Stuck shifting lever
Hunting a camp spot
Once we left the lunch spot we were looking for a place to camp up in the hills if possible so we took this road that went up into the hills and dead ended up there a few miles ahead. All the trails are made from a bunch of wild horses in the area going to a water hole up where we are going to camp.
Lots of wild horses at the watering hole
As we approached the water hole area lots of wild horses were running out away from it as they didn’t like us in their area and likely headed for another water hole.
Walk to the mining area
After dinner I walked up to where they had done some mining.
Tonight’s camp spot
Tomorrow we are headed for a big mining area in the Humboldt Mountain Range just below Lovelock Nevada to explore around and I’m not sure where this might get posted from or when.
Nice day exploring around the desert.
