I got stuck on wifi for much of the day today. I was however told that Spring Mountain was worth checking out. I’ll generally have a look at anything anyone suggests. I looked at a map, spotted it, and rolled out to explore.
The only track I could put together with my map brought me through here:
Yes, that’s a tank in the background. This can’t be the only way to Spring Mountain.
I looped around as best I could and found what appeared to be a good track along the power lines that headed the right direction.
It ended up being too close to the military area and I ran up on some some out buildings that I probably shouldn’t have been anywhere near. So back I went, again.
I love the desert.
Further down the road I found some more power lines with some double track.
It was sandy.
Just hit the gas and keep your weight back.
Bombed over a sink hole in 5th – it startled the crap out of me. Doubled back for the photo.
Just a giant hole in the middle of the road. Hah.
I had another pucker moment a little further up the road. Barely stopped in time. That’s Spring Mountain in the distance.
The entire area was washed out with a 6 foot deep gully. No way across. It was getting dark fast – I’ll give it another try first thing in the AM. I’ll have to check some more maps.
Tail light went out – little roadside fix.
