Sunday, April 12
The crew and I leave Ward Mountain Campground, Ely, Nevada, and travel north on Route 93. We turn west on Route 229 which takes us to the eastern side of the Ruby Mountains.
There is no internet connection at the campground, nor can I find any for my Verizon jetpack in the long and wide Ruby Valley. The wildlife officer confirms there is no signal to be had.
In order to post this, I cross the Ruby Mountains through Harrison Pass and drive northward toward Elko until I pick up this weak signal.
I have lots of photos, but can only post a few now.
A weather advisory posted for this area predicts winds in the 50-60 mph range with temperatures overnight dropping below 20 degrees, possibility of snow.
Obviously I won’t be driving over the mountains again to make another post!
Please take care of the blog in my absence by answering questions and making everyone feel welcome and appreciated. Thanks.
We will be here for several days in order to explore and enjoy this wild and remote area around our camp at the base of the magnificent Ruby Mountains. You may not see an update here for several days.
I’ll miss you!
NOTE: Please overlook any errors. I can’t take time to proofread and edit. I have mountains to cross!
