Day 6 - There was a huge mine down the mountain and barely in sight from our camp. All night long you could faintly hear some big machine grinding away on a project. Slept like a king but I awoke at about 4:30 am and snapped this pic. Theres Jims tent. My VE25 rain fly worked out great as it didnt rain and there were no bugs at all. No poles, lines or stakes to put away, just jam it into my drybag and strap it on the back. Might just be onto something there! Leaving camp, we all elected to ride this extra credit climb to the summit we were camped beneath. Several of us picked the absolute wrong lane and bashed Nevada stones to the top. Great way to start the day! You can see part of the mine way down there on the left, town was in the drainage to the right of that. Its already warm and looks to be hot today. This is the general direction were headed. Kenny and Colin have graciously volunteered to put together a route for us and did a great job navigating on the fly. more . . .
