The goal of the trip is to drive the Saline Valley Road.
It is a beautiful day and I am looking forward to seeing how the Truck/Camper combo will perform off-road.
We amble along without a care. The scenery is – choose your adjective.
We come down into an old mine, of which there are several. Here we meet Richard and Zack, the only people I see on the whole trip.
They are amazing. They are archeologist/archivists, working for the Federal Government, surveying the mining camps in the West. They have been camping out for the last three days. It is very cold. They tell me wonderful things about the logistics of gold mining in these lost places in the 1890s but I am in too much of a hurry to pass it on to you.
I have to hurry. Great trip. I get back to Alabama Hills, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alabama_Hills and camp.
Sorry to rush you.
