After we got rained out for doing Morey Peak east of Tonopah, we decided to grab one that was on the way to Grapevine Peak near Beatty. Gold Mountain was one that Dennis had done before but he recommended it as a replacement for Morey Peak and it turned out to be a good choice. We drove fairly high and was able to get within less than a mile of the summit. The views were excellent and I want to publicly thank Dennis for suggesting this one and then being willing to repeat it. We went on to do Bare Mountain the next day and Grapevine Peak two days later.
