We spent last weekend in the desert with our friends Dan, Renee, and Coconut. We started up Granite peak near Gerlach, and while we didn’t make the summit, we enjoyed every minute. This is some amazing country we live in.
We drove up past Pyramid lake and spent a chilly (22°F) night in the Smoke creek desert.
Our outing on Granite peak featured wandering ridges, rock gardens, berry-laden junipers, and rugged canyons.
