Yep, that is the BLM office, just off Deer Run Road, just before it drops down to cross the Carson River. I'd suggest we try and meet up around 9. If we make the full journey we'll end up in Bodie before heading back north.

Sunrise Pass comes out into Artesia Road that runs into Upper Colony Road that runs into Wellington. In Wellington we would pick up Hoye Canyon Road, which follows the west fork of the Walker River back into Antelope Valley, where it turns into Eastside Lane. Risue Road forks off Eastside Lane back to the east. This would be a chance to run up Eastside into Walker for lunch. Or keep moving and take Risue over the norther should of the Sweetwater Mountains and come out on SR 338, whgich we take south until we hit the east fork of the Walker and turn onto Forest Road 28. Shortly after it crosses the river we'll turn off onto Forest Road 46 which takes us into Masonic, an old mining camp. and then out the old stage road from Masonic to Bodie. There are many variations to this route. Its a bit of a long day, maybe pushing 250 miles, 80 of which would be the run back home on 395, but if there is enough daylight and desire, on the way back can take Bircham Flat Road from Sonora Junction to Walker, pick up a local utility road from Holbrook Junction to the top of Monitor and then Leviathan Mine Road back down to 395.
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro
