I didn’t get to post yesterdays parody of the area, so it’s two for the price of one, today. Seriously, I could get to really like this part of the Country during this time of year. Most of the crowds are gone and other than our gathering area the desert is sparsely populated. Sally and I headed out this morning to climb part way up Dome Rock and visit some old mines. We’re heading up there.
Lots of these around to put a hurt on you.
Someone left behind their fireplace. Lots of work went into it. Too bad they didn’t burn their garbage.
The real deal.
We didn’t enter as it looked like it would be home to critters that crawled, and bite, and sting. From there we started the most difficult part of the climb toward a much larger tailings pile.
Taking a breather.
Once there, we found the entrance to that mine had been blown to prevent entry. There may be some good stuff still in there.
Quite windy today, so it was a wonderful morning for a hike in the desert……jc
