Monday, Sunday, Monday October 13, 14, 15, 2018 Tuscarora, Bull Run Reservoir Nevada, Maggie’s Summit
Time to do some catching up here. I’m parked near Maggie’s Summit near Mountain City Nevada for a break and to figure out what I want to do from here.
Saturday the 13th
Saturday I left the Willow Creek Reservoir and headed east to Tuscarora where I took a left and drove up into the mountains there.
Exploring up there
At Tuscarora I turned west and drove out up into the mountains as I’ve never been in this area. The road went up to the top and over the other side.
I was curious which road went through from the top as I was trying to get to this area on my last trip from the west and I went up Rock Creek but got turned around at a washout.
Toe Jam Creek Road
I met some people up there in a side by side. They’d rode over from Midas, so now I knew the Toe Jam Road went on through.
Tonight’s camp area
I camped along the creek just above the cabin.
Checked out the mining area
The next morning on the way out I walked around the mine to check it out.
And headed to Tailor Canyon Saloon
I was headed for this place called Tailor Canyon Saloon. I was hoping to talk with Bubba who helped me with my bum tire the last trip. But the place was hopping so I knew everyone would be too busy so I drove on by and up to a mining area above it fairly high on the hill.
Checked out this mining area above Tailor Canyon
I thought about spending the night there but it was too early in the day so I drove back down to the highway and headed towards Maggie’s Summit a few hours up the road.
Camped at Bull Run Reservoir area
Walk to bull Run Reservoir
And the reservoir was mostly dry
I ended up walking to it’s far end where the dam was which added about another mile in.
Camp spot for the night
Monday the 15th
In the morning I took my time getting it going as I’m not in a rush to be anywhere particularly and besides it was cold out.
I’m headed for the Duck Valley Indian Reservation eventually to get gas and post these blogs.
Right now I’m taking a break by Maggie’s Summit and deciding what to do from here. I’m thinking I might drive over to the town of Bruneau which is north of the Indian Reservation and I haven’t been to this town before but it looks interesting on the map.
Either way I’m headed to the Duck Valley Indian Reservation for gas and to post.
I’m at the Duck Valley Indian Reservation’s IT lab by their high school doing internet stuff.
I plan to go visit Joe at the Tire Shop here for a visit and maybe get some drinking water and then continue on to a town called Bruneau an hour or so north of here in Idaho. After that I’m thinking I might go to Davis Creek in Modoc in the northeastern part of California to visit some locals from my area that have a hunting place there.
Not sure where I’ll be able to post from next so stay tuned.
Nice day here.
