    They are replacing the gas pumps and tanks at Denio Junction. If you are planning a trip thru there, call them up to check to see if they have fuel. Maria says they will not have fuel until sometime in May. They plan to have 24 hr pay at the pump once the job is complete. :D

    Thanks for the info! A 24hr pump that takes credit cards will be a big improvement. I do a couple of rides through there each year, fortunately later in the year once the snow melts in the higher elevation.

    Lived in Winnemucca for about 20 years, have found local ranchers very willing to sell you fuel if your out there and Denio is closed. Have CASH ride slow into their property and ask. Has allways worked for me.

    As far as I know, the place went out of business. :(


    I heard there are new owners but have no contact info that works anymore.

    Back south to Horse Canyon to get back on the TAT is my guess.

    Yup, We're following Sam's TAT roll charts, which pass through Denio Junction. So We'll head 20+ miles up the road to Fields, get gas & food, then back to rejoin the TAT.

    May as well go up and soak at the hot springs at the Alvord Playa and go out for a top speed run if you're going up that way.

    If you go up to Fields... might as well ride 'Domingo Pass' and
    come down the west side of the mountain by Bog Hot Springs.

    Then... WWII bomber crash site too is just up the mountain too. (Propeller Meadows).
