Plumas National Forest Fire Lookout

Cliff area ahead! They aren’t kidding!  If one was to rip-up this road at night you could easily fly right off the mountain. Maybe during daylight also? Had hoped to take a twisty mountain ride on two of my favorite Sierra Nevada highways. However, fire mop-up operations were still underway and the roads were closed. Needed to punt, so did … Read More

Heading home from the Overland Expo West event several years ago, after an unseasonably warm April in Amado, Arizona, I camped at Hickson Petroglyphs Recreation Area/Campground, in one of Nevada’s numerous mountain ranges.
