Shadow mountain as seen from camp. What a lovely day! So happy the clouds are finally gone.
There are several mine diggings out here - be careful!
Looking back on the Shadow Mountain Mine from the walk.
We follow an old road for a while, walking past several of these holes.
Nope, not going down there. David checked it out and the only thing he found was a baby rattlesnake. Nope. Nope nope nope.
We popped up on the ridge and followed it to the peak.
Heading up one of the several bumps on the way to the summit.
Many rock piles around the area.
Robin on the ridge towards the summit.
Shadow Mountain benchmark
View back down the ridge we just climbed.
Lots of snow over on Charleston.
And even a bunch on Clark.
Me on Shadow. Kingston, the peak we bailed on due to snow the previous day, is behind me. With no snow. Hm.
Mesquite range view - yesterday's substitute climb.
Track of our hike up Shadow.
We found another building back in the Shadow Mountain Mine area. This is a step up from the corrugated wall structures near the mill site - maybe this was the supervisor's house?
This was the only stone building we found - the rest were tin shacks.
Nice view, but it could use some work.
Wood frame is still in the door.
Welcome to my new desert fixer-upper.
A peek at the deep sand on the road on the way in. Be careful out here - no 2WD!
Driving past the Ivanpah Solar project. The collectors were glowing!
We stopped in at the Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings for lunch. this is a fun little place.
Tin ceiling in Pioneer
Oh that's right, we're in Nevada now.
This is how the Pioneer Saloon stays heated. Love it.
