Ken Jones and I camped at the Tabor Creek campground the night before and then drove up the jeep road to close to the base of this mountain. We had a great hike and wonderful views from the summit. One snow patch that we cross indicated that a remnant of winter remained high on the mountain but what made this trip remarkable was all the GREEN. I haven't seen Nevada this green in July before. Outstanding.
