Beings that I was the only Oregonian from TNX to venture into the so-called ‘Forbidden Zone’, I didn’t join the main group at Gerlach or Soldiers Meadow and met them at Willow Creek Hot Springs on Saturday.
I left Friday AM with a friend and headed out to Cowboy Dinner Tree which is known for serving a cowboys dinner.
We found a spot along a river to camp. It was only 5 minutes from where we ate which was awesome because after that meal, we weren’t going far.
We had some amazing sights along the way…
Might as well take in the beautiful scenery when nature calls
Made it a multi state trip
We found some local wildlife and @VetxSquared
was kind enough to explain the difference between venomous and non-venomous species
The sun was pretty strong and we all resorted to various methods of sun protection, but @XKNUT
had it dialed in.
grilled up some rack of lamb and it was amazing. If you go on a TNX trip, make sure you go to one where he is going to cook a meal
Here is a shot of the tubs. If you go with @ChrisHaynesUSA
, make sure you shield your eyes. As @nworker
said, it’s a bell that can’t be unrung.
On the way home, we almost ran into cows. Literally.
Total trip mileage (No where close to the CA guys):
In closing it was a great trip and it was great to meet some individuals from the forum! Hope to do it again soon. Nice planning Mr. Haynes!
