I pulled off of I-80 between Elko and Wells at a spot on the map called Halleck, and headed south on Nevada Hwy 229.

The fresh snow, a fine coating of ice, and a mountain pass called 'Secret Pass': Perfect.

The 'Secret Pass' is, paradoxically, clearly labeled by the highway department.

Sorry for the cruddy image.

Orographic clouds over Secret Peak (9168'), just south of Secret Pass.
Ruby Mountain Wilderness, Humbolt National Forest.
Ruby Valley is part of the quixotically hostile "Sagebrush Rebellion". Don't tell these ranchers what to do with their land -- event if 'their' land is really public land.

Cows don't understand politics.

Clover Valley. Uhh, where's the clover?
