September 2019 Archives

Flew my father in from Houston to have him join us on a first Jeep trek across the Pony Express (starting at Vernon, Utah) all the way into Wendover.

On the way, we had stops at:

Simpson Springs

Fish Springs

Callau

Gold Hill

Wendover, NV

The amount of water in the desert is surreal. Who would have thought how much wildlife and water (fresh springs) existed in the expanse of Utah west desert!

After an overnight with some Blackjack at a Wendover casino, we proceeded due north toward the north end of the Pilot Peak Range. Patterson Pass is a great route to a scenic overlook:

The question posed was, do we drop down the steep and off-camber or do we turn around? The group decided we should venture over the top. While I’ve dropped down this section on ATV at least 3-4 times, I’ve never done this in a brand new Jeep Gladiator. Being off-camber in a Jeep is so much different than on an ATV!

Once at the base, I stashed a new geocache and we proceeded toward the Sun Tunnels for a late lunch.

From there, we passed through Lucin and onward toward the Devil’s Playground. From there, onward to Zaqistan:
