July 5th run

I thought there was a thread for a run(s) for the weekend of July 4th but perhaps I am mistaken. Anyone have and runs happening? I am thinking of doing one but not sure exactly where just yet. Maybe gold butte?

I would be up for the 6th. Unfortunately I can't claim Friday as a holiday. Never been to Gold Butte. Would that be an overnighter or is it close enough to be a day trip if you leave early enough in the AM?

It is easily doable in a day depending on what you do there. There is the triple c dam there and a few other old civil engineering items there that I wouldn't mind to look at. Otherwise there is always the option to snag a couple buckets of dirt for later panning.

I'm off the 4th thru the 7th and good to go. Gold Butte is a cool area, another run that was suggested was up Carpenter Canyon.

And I made a post on the chit chat thread suggesting a run or two over the weekend.

I knew I saw something somewhere. Carpenter would be cool. I am curious if it is still blocked off up near the cabins.

Looking at maps, there's a huge mostly unpaved area with a lot of dirt roads between Mesquite (South), Caliente(North) and Alamo(West), St. George(East). Anything cool there in the middle besides the Delamar ghost town?

I hunt near there but not that exact area. Might be a good option.

Carpenter canyon might be the best option as it is a lot closer.

Looks like I'm in on the 5th. Just received an email corporate wide stating the Friday is a forced Vacation Day. I will have my 40 hours in by end of day next Wednesday and I will still be forced to take a vacation day. Nice corporate policies for the salaried staff.

I may be in. Found this on the DW page from April


Carpenter Canyon, a beautiful area on the back side of Mt. Charleston off state Route 160, as you journey into Pahrump, NV. After traveling through a large Joshua Forest, we will climb to an elevation of over 4,000 above sea level, crossing running streams and a beautiful pine forest with wonderful views. There are trout in the streams, so if you have your fishing license and a fishing pole you just might get a chance at catching a few. This will not be an all day journey, but make sure you bring plenty of water and your lunch. Be prepared for any type of weather as I'm not sure what to exspect. Also bring your camera's as it's spring, and the wild flowers should be in full bloom. Remember, this a family friendly club, so bring the kids and animals along for the ride. For those of you that like to camp and hike, this is a great opportunity to get a feel of the area for future return trips after this trip is over.

Read some stuff on line seems like a good trip 5 Jul high is 103 on the 10 day forecast.

Let me know when and where.

We can do Wheeler Pass Backwards at the end of doing Carpenter Canyon or something.

Sounds good.

Are all of us up in the NW part of the valley? If so we can meet at the Albertsons/McD's off Durango and Farm. Meet at 9am, figure just over an hour to terribles in Pahrump. Too off and head up Carpenters and on way back we can hit wheelers. Or do you think we should meet earlier?

Backing out Peeps, free room and board in San Diego over the holiday weekend is kind of hard to pass up.

Yes that is what I was thinking. The distance is about the same and with most of us up in NW.

What are your thoughts?

As long as we all agree, sure. But I think that CFR Marine is from the South East. And I think 830 for a target would be better, leave at 9.

LAS VEGAS -- Firefighters with the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forestry Service are working to put out a growing fire burning in the Carpenter Canyon area of Mt. Charleston, which is on the Pahrump side of the mountain.
According to the BLM, the fire started Monday, when lightning hit a tree. The fire has now spread to between 800 and 1,000 acres. It is being fueled by pinyon juniper trees.
Four engines, a single-engine air tanker dropping fire retardant and a helicopter dropping water is being used to fight the fire. The Forest Service's most advanced ground crew is fighting the fire. More resources are expected Wednesday.
BLM spokeswoman Hilarie Patton said Trout Canyon Road is expected to close. The town of Trout Canyon is about two miles away from the fire, she said. No structures are threatened at this time.
The fire is not contained at all, she said.
