2006 (Nov 18) Nelson Mtn (Galena) in the Nelson Range, Cerrusite Cabin, Buckhorn Cabin : Left Torrance really late and drove to the trailhead in the dark, pulling over at 4am.  I woke up at 8am, checked out the Cerrusite Cabin (door sign said Nelson Cabin) on the way to the trailhead.   Cool views from the summit, and a lot of DPS group entries.  I was the second one to sign in for 2006.   On the drive out I stopped at the Boxcar Cabin (sign said Buckhorn).   (wk 44, day 1)

2006 (Nov 19) Another desert peak we didn't make : Tomcat_rc met me at the trailhead to do this desert peak.  We made it to a bump at 8,300', 0.66 mi from the summit.  We had a turnaround time to avoid hiking out over the waterfall ridge in the dark.  I got 4 yellowjacket wasp stings which delayed us a little, and we hiked out in the dark.  (wk 44, day 2)

2006 (Nov 11) McCoy Peak in the McCoy Mountains : Arrived at Corn Springs 3am.  Checked out petroglyphs, then met Astrohound and Yukon Jack at Wiley's Well Rest Stop at 9am.  I drove us to the base of McCoy Peak, (fun drive) and got to use the rear lockers to get out of a wash, and added pin stripes to my 3 day old FJ Cruiser. We found "the Real McCoy" terracache, then headed back.  Drove to Granite Mtns, found "Above Palen Pass" terracache, then set up camp for the night.
