This is the first set of photos taken today from a ride into the Springs. I usually will not drive beyond the snow line as my truck has never seen salt but the salt and water had all dried up hence I did make it up to the Mount Charleston Lodge at about 7500 feet of elevation. Lots more photos from today coming!
The Spring Mountains are home to Mount Charleston and Fletcher Peaks, both mountains are just below 12,000 in altitude. I did not try for the ski lodge which is on a different road, I’ll wait until spring for that ride.
These photos start the ride whilst still on the ninety five freeway heading northbound. It’s almost seventy degrees down here in the valley today but it was forty degrees at the lodge at about seventy five hundred feet!
