Thursday July 13, 2017 Maggie’s Summit Nevada
I got a good start on the trip yesterday, left the house around 10:30AM. I was planning to stop for the night before I got to Winnemucca, but since I got there early, I decided to continue on to the Willow Creek reservoir, about another hundred miles or so.
Lots of waves
I saw these three white trucks pull over up ahead so I waved as I went by, little did I know there were about twenty of these with a fire truck bringing up the rear, so my arm was busy waving away. Apparently it’s some kind of federal fire crew coming back for a fire. Lots of smoke in the air.
Willow Creek Reservoir
I had a good night camped on top of the dam.
Going to camp down there
Tonight’s camp spot
Tomorrow I plan to continue over Maggie’s Summit and on to the Duck Valley Indian Reservation, mostly because I can only get internet there on week days. I plan to go to Scotts ranch from there and eventually to Twin Falls Idaho in about a week to meet up for the Continental Divide part of the trip. Of course I have a couple other camp spots on the way.
That’s it for my day.
