Goldpoint , Nevada was of particular interest and joy after a hardy ride through the twisty mountain roads and desert trails. The towns curator / defacto mayor / saloon owner...hell I think he owns the hole damn place.... Packing heat and a well of stories.. forgot his name but if you pull up to the saloon in town he'll drive on over and open up for your group. Not a huge menu but the spicy wings and a beer sure hit the spot. Like the wild west, trusty steeds awaiting. Goldfield , Nevada up the road is a genuine mining town of interest with a few quirks. Dozens of vehicles similarly compromised make up this errr... art exhibit. You never know what you'll see or who you'll meet. This gentleman was weighing in quite a catch in Virginia Lake way up in the Sierras off CA 395. Riding in a group has its own challenges and charms. But there's nothing like hitting the open road solo. Mono Lake in the distance.
