    Oh bummer, I spent one night in the Monti Cristo range last week just hoping to rock & roll, but I felt nothing. Slept better than I do at home.

    I felt the 6.5er weeks back and it was, wow mother nature is someone to take seriously.

    But the sunset and sunrise were rewarding.

    I took some photos there and there was a bit of big quake evidence.

    NDOT extended the closure of the Coaldale to Mina 95 till the end of the month.

    Happy to share, as I'm sure you are. I was fortnuate to have a unique perspective for the last 16 years, both as a judge and now in the tower. That said, so many folks on here also have unique perspectives and they really provide some very cool insights into this unique event.

    And I have GOT to make it out to Tonopah...that was good stuff!
    Owen,

    The Mizpah hotel is worth a nights stay, the mining museum behind the hotel is awesome, and a stop at the fire dept has a nice plaque.

    OMG, you guys are really ringing my memory bells! When I was a kid, my dad would get remote jobs sometimes with his contractor employers (he was a mason) I remember a lot of these places! Sometimes we would go with him and "camp out" in the back of his '57 GMC pickup...

    WOW.. totally remember the Mizpah!

    The look of the old wood also brings back a lot of memories. Up here in the Northwest, wood does not have a chance to achieve that patina before it rots!

    That might well have been a perfect shot had the focus been more spot on! I don't see any motion blur in the subject, just out of focus a bit.. overall, a pretty damn good shot I'd say!!
