At last we are headed back to the beautiful Pine Forest Wilderness. This will be our first trip there since it has become one of Nevada's newest wilderness areas. Located just Southeast of the Sheldon Wildlife Refuge, this area stands in juxtaposition to the surrounding desert. High granitic mountains, studded with, you guessed it, Pine trees! And Lakes. And amazing views of the surrounding desert!
We plan to leave the office the afternoon of July 21st and spend the weekend camping. This will be a great trip to see lots of country as volunteers will have the opportunity to install boundary markers identifying the edge of the wilderness.
As usual, Friends of Nevada Wilderness will provide a decadent Dutch Oven Meal on the work day and breakfasts each morning, complete with hot coffee and tea and cocoa. Be sure to RSVP early and get in on this wonderful trip.
As always, the trip is subject to change due to weather and/or unforeseen circumstances. We will let folks know if anything changes.
