The wind had been unrelenting all night. MJ and I had been enjoying sleeping out under the stars the previous 3 nights. She opted to move into the tent, but I figured the winds would die down as the night progressed. Sometimes you just get it wrong. So I was dragging a bit as we headed from camp to visit Virginia May.

Obviously this was a big operation as evidenced by the remaining concrete slabs and old equipment near Horn Springs. Lots of old rusty stuff about to include a car down in the wash. Everyone enjoyed poking around and seeing if we could figure out what things might have been back in the day. There were even rusted aerosol cans.

The road split and Blake and MJ (who were both feeling much better than me) scouted the upper road in search of Virginia. I think Steph held back to make sure I was OK. Nothing that way so we continued west in search of Virginia. I was real happy when we found that hole in the mountain. Got some more water and an energy bar in me and that gave me courage to join the rest in the mine shaft, something very out of my comfort zone, but it was highly interesting (and dark).
