Ruby Crest Trail Shuttle Service: You can do this hike without a shuttle, but many I’ve dropped at either Harrison Pass or the turnaround at Thomas Canyon Road’s End, later told me they’d met folks who were hiking both ways: from their car, over 5 passes to Overland Lake, and then back to the car. Those folks said they weren’t looking forward AT ALL to the grueling hike back to the car (5 passes again)! The shuttle makes it a better trip.
I will shuttle you to either Road’s End in Thomas Canyon or Harrison Pass. I recommend Harrison Pass because it’s safer to leave your car at Road’s End at the top of Thomas Canyon. Either way this hike is a strenuous one with a lot of altitude change. You’ll be either going up or going back down much of the way!

All of you who’ve come on a tour with us know you won’t find moss in northeastern Nevada. A study in contrast for our two friends! A miles-down-the-valley [read more…]

Armando Deferrari and Pablo Lozano are Argentine master rawhide braiders. They and the Brazilians were guests of the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering this year, and some of their [read more…]
The lost purse story is circulating through Elko. O’Carrolls breakfast group in Lamoille heard it from Paula who got it from Cowboy John. Susan passed it to a bridge group in town, and from there it hit the Western Folklife Center. Wisconsin Sue is the lady holding the bag in this tale, and she’s feeling [read more…]
In the late 90s we brought Ed Miller to Sarah’s house at Cowboy Poetry Gathering time. He was part of the Gathering’s showcase that year of Scottish cowboy tradition. John and I, throughout the week, invite out-of-towners to dinner at Sarah’s, and Ed agreed to come. That evening after the meal he played guitar while [read more…]
