Just a heads upÖ There is a locked gate on your route near Stanton.
There are now several houses / mining camps just South of the intersection of Stanton & Mina Roads. They have installed fencing and locked gates. I have tried to go around but it gets really tough and itís much easier to follow this liíl detour.
At the intersection of Mina & Stanton roads go East on Octave Road to Angels Ranch Road. After a short distance you will see powerlines, follow them South until you get back on your original route.
When I was last in this area there are several miners most are friendly but some have mean damn DOGS that run loose. So watch out for them!
