Another time...

Took another early AM trip to the South... Vulture Mine road into the Belmont Mountain range and on to the very exciting settlement of Tonopah! A bit more pavement riding than I like, 110 miles only 39 in the dirt, but it was the fastest way to get back to my 'cool shop'.


Belmont Mountains, destination was on the other side...


The few clouds were welcome as they delayed the heat








Belmont Mine remains...


Guessing this was some sort of water tank, approximately 12' deep. At this point I'm on the South side of Belmont Mountains.


Bridge across the C.A.P. canal. Colorado river water head'n towards "The Valley of The Sun".


A few cows at the Tonopah Dairy. Yes it did have an odor! However I'm sure it smell's like $$$ to the dairy people.

Made a stop at the Shell station in Tonopah and had a cool drink in the shade then road'd back to the Casa.

Hope you enjoyed another backyard trek.
