We are about 35 miles east of Fallon. It is a hot and dry day and l have just hiked through a large salt flats area which made the walking quite miserable. Am bothered from time to time by large flies that try to land on my ears. Quite annoying. Valda went on up ahead to the Sand Mountain Recreational Area and watched the people ride their dune buggies all around the two mile long hills of sand. I saw them from a distance and even through binoculars – they looked like ants crawling around the hill. After the salt flats, l started climbing and went over Sand Creek Pass at 4644′ elevation. We are heading to Austin, about half way through Nevada. I have entered and exited the Fallon Naval Air Station Target Range and saw no signs of it being closed to pedestrians (as l was told earlier). It’s funny seeing a Naval Air Station sign in the middle of Nevada.
