More of the first day.
They really don't want you going into this tunnel!
This way, straight ahead. The next picture in the link that I posted shows the pine tree that reached out and grabbed me. In this pic., the trail looks flat, but has a slight rise to it. This is the trail after that strange hunting shack that we stopped to look at. IdahoSam, did you see the link to my pictures?
Baja Ho, yes I did see your pictures It was just friendly bantering with Ed. He always has these fantastic Fall rides.
So it's it looking pretty so far and now nice to have some pictures in context.
Still more of the first day.
Dan is reaching.
Nice rear end.....
At Kyle Hot Springs.
120° F in this pool. Too hot.
94° F in the upper tub. Too cold. The bottom tub wasn't even warm.
Nice view of the dust storm on the playa. It was very windy.
On the other side of the valley.
Some of the locals enjoying the park.
At a dead end road.
You never know what you'll find in the middle of nowhere...........
Stupid thing won't let me edit my post. Actually I took pics of the big truck the first day and then I took Dan by there another day. So I used the pics from that day.
I'm going to load the gear on the DR and camp and soak in a hotsprings this weekend. Anyone wanna go with?
where are you going?
what he said
Day two started off a little moist for the first hour. Dan arrived the night before so I had company today.
This was a freaky rock. It was like an egg. The outer shell had broken off.
This area of Nevada has more of these windmill driven stock water well pumps than I have seen anywhere.
That's all I got for day two.
Here is the start of day three. Bob arrived the night before so the three of us headed out on day three. He got about 100 yards and had to limp back to camp. Feel free to guess what happened.
The ol' rag in the air box syndrome?
Good guess! That was easier then the name the location thread.
Indeed - the OL' rag is one place I recognize!
Okay, on with day three. After Bob undid his intake mod we are ready to roll. Now I guess the KTM is:
We headed to Gerlach for lunch at Bruno's. There is the Black Rock playa in the distance.
At Painted Canyon we got onto a kick butt two track that had some history.
I stopped to read this sign and started laughing. "Somewhat uneven" and "good wheeling." Hell Yeah!!! Those boys knew how to cut a fun trail. If they only knew what kind of pace could be attained with two wheels.
Strange little cabin with a second story that had no access.
Last picture for day three.
Day four. Dan loaded up and headed home, so that left Bob and I to ride today.
This was a fun road.
We scared up some antelope. About 20 minutes later we came back this way and stopped and talked to a couple of antelope hunters that had just shot a buck. I think we scared the antelope into their sights.
Sweet Trailrider, wish I could have made it. Thanks for the pics and reports.
Tunnel Camp. http://silverstateghosttowns.com/tunnell.html
Nice ride(s). Always interesting riding in the desert and the things one finds. Lots of cool picture's from you guys. Tunnel Camp link was interesting too. Many times we run across these old sites, but find it hard to discover the history.
Sweet area to ride & explore, thanks for the pics.
