Next trip

Post by Randy Hees » Wed May 27, 2015 9:49 am

I am off in about 20 hours for a grand tour... first Hawthorne NV for the SPng conference... then south with a visit to Laws to look at their turntable... continuing south I will cross the Panamints to camp somewhere in Death Valley (nice and warm) then south through Shoshone to Daggett... to spend a day exploring the Calico and Daggett, Borate and Daggett, American Borax Railroad and Palm Borate...

The next day I will follow Rt 66 through Amboy, looking at the remains of the Leslie Salt works at Saltus and a gypsom railroad, both on Bristol Lake... then through Needles across the Colorado tracing the Mohave and Milltown... there is a BLM trail suitable for the Jeep... up to the mine site near Oatman... then on to Flagstaff to look at court records related to the M&M before heading east to Albuquerque to meet my wife for a week in Santa Fe and Taos...

Once she flies home I will camp at Chaco, then Cedar Mesa... crossing Lake Powell at Halls Crossing then west across central Nevada and home...

There may be railroads involved, most sadly long gone...
