Another day of exploring
I’ve posted two blogs just now, so you might want to read the one at the bottom first, Friday, June 13th.
Posted from home.
Maggie’s Summit road and a side road
I went down highway 225 for a few miles then turned right onto the Maggie’s summit road. I drove up it a ways until I got to a road I wanted to check out that went on up behind a ranch into the hills.
I climbed up into the hills until I could see a cattle moving operation going on up ahead of me, just as I was about to get into the quaking aspen trees. I decided to stop and not go on up any further this trip. Save some for another trip.
In the mean time, these people rode by with some more cattle going up the road past me. I think these people are from the ranch nearby. They did all say hi, but where too busy working to talk, so I left them at it and headed back down the hill.
Roughest part of the road
Just before Maggie’s summit, I turned off to the right to check out a camp site area and take a break.
All kinds of critters
Short walk in the flowers
Checked out another four wheel drive road looking for camp spot
After I came down off the Maggie’s summit road, I went on down the paved highway, 226, I think it was until I got to the Midas, Tuscarora Road which I traveled at a leisurely pace stopping to check things out until I got to the Willow Creek Reservoir which I stopped at for a rest before going on down the road a couple miles to the first bridge where I turned right to check out another four wheel drive road. I followed it for five or so miles looking for a camp spot, before I gave up and turned around and headed back to the main road, which I crossed to the road on the other side.
Camped at Willow Creek
Tomorrow I have a couple things I want to check on the way to Winnemucca.
After that, if time permits, I may head on home?
