Sand Mountain, as seen from US. Highway 50

Sand Mountain is a large sand dune a half-mile north of U. S. Highway 50, about 26 miles east of Fallon, Nevada. Sand Mountain is 2 miles long, a mile wide and more than 600 feet high. This perfect hill of fine bleached sand has blown into a box canyon over thousands of years from the flats of Lake Lahontan, an ancient sea now dry. The huge pile of sand is available to ATV enthusiasts who buzz up and down the dune, with the constant winds covering the tracks in short order.

About 10,000 years ago glaciers filled many of the valleys in the Sierra Nevada to the west. The cool, wet climate and runoff from these glaciers had created an immense inland lake now known as Lake Lahontan, covered some 8,500 square miles including most of northern and central Nevada and parts of Oregon, Utah, California and Idaho. But as the climate grew warmer and the glaciers retreated, the lake slowly started to dry up. About 4000 years ago the lake level dropped below where Sand Mountain now stands. All that remains are Pyramid and Walker lakes and a handful f dry lake beds such as the Humboldt and Carson sinks, the Black Rock Desert and Winnemucca Lake, near Pyramid Lake.

Meanwhile quartz particles, which the glaciers had ground away from the hard Sierra granite, were washed down the Walker River and deposited in the river's delta. As the wind blew across the delta this sand was picked up and carried high into the air. More than thirty miles to the northeast, the wind was slowed by a large basin on the southwest flank of the Stillwater Range. With its force broken by the mountain, the wind's burden of sand would fall into this natural trap. Over the centuries Sand Mountain grew until it reached its present height of almost 600 feet.

The wind is constantly changing the shape of Sand Mountain and sometimes the shifting of the sand will produce a soft rustling, or even an eerie booming sound. This unique characteristic has earned Sand Mountain its nickname of "Singing Mountain".

The Sand Mountain blue butterfly (Euphilotes pallescens arenamontana) inhabits only this single sand dune in Churchill County.

BLM sign at the earthquake faults.

Photograph taken June 2, 2005.

Fairview Peak

Earthquake Faults

When the energy from pressure built up underneath the Earth's thin crust is suddenly released, an earthquake occurs. At first the crust may just bend, But if the stress is great enough, the rocks will break and "snap" to a new position. This usually happens along fractures in the earth known as faults. If the fault lies close to the surface it may become visible following a large earthquake -- the area directly in front of you is an example of this.

Between July and December 1954, six earthquakes and two major aftershocks rocked western Nevada and eastern California. The largest of these, measuring 7.3 on the Richter Scale, was centered seven miles west of here and happened on December 16th. These quakes were felt as far away as Elko, NV and Sacramento, CA. More than to miles of faulting were exposed on Fairview Peak and in the Stillwater Range to the northwest. In a matter of moments, the mountains lifted up an average of six feet relative to the surrounding valleys. In some places the mountains rose more than 20 feet! Try to imagine what it must have felt like, and how you would have reacted if you had been camping in this area that day.

If you follow this road south, the exposed fault line is clearly visible in several places. Interpretive signs along the road provide more information. About four miles from here a short side road leads to a parking area next to the fault itself. Four-wheel drive vehicles are not usually required to reach this area, however buses and motor homes should stay on the main road.

Traffic jam in Jiggs, Nevada.

As I came around the bend into Jiggs, it became readily apparent why the road was littered with cow poop. The cowboys were using the road to move cows from pasture to pasture. I waited here a few minutes while they finished herding the cows into a field at right, then continued on my way. My car, of course, had a nice aromatic layer of cow poop in the wheel wells and on the rocker panels.

Stopped just north of Jiggs specifically to take this photograph, of a view I noticed yesterday. The dirt road in the foreground follows Huntington Creek to Twin Bridges. This is the other end of the road where I saw the Larkspurs yesterday. After taking the photograph and driving down to the ranch, I saw the ranchers herding a few cows back into their fields. I assumed that a few of their cows had escaped from pastures in the night.

Historical Marker for Jackrabbit.

Photograph taken June 5, 2009.

The Jackrabbit Mines were at the base of the hills in the distance.

Jackrabbit
Local legend attributes the discovery to the locator picking up a rock to throw at a jackrabbit and finding himself holding high grade silver. The Jackrabbit district, named for the mine, was located in 1876 by Isaac Newton Garrison. Early mine production of the camp, at one time named Royal City, was about ten tons per day, carrying native silver in flakes. Yielding about $40 per ton -- sometimes as high as $2,000 per ton. Mineral production declined during the 1880's, but when a fifteen-mile narrow gauge railroad was opened in 1891 between the Jackrabbit mine and Pioche, mining soon increased. After 1893, the mines fell silent except for several short periods of activity in 1906-1907 and 1912-1914.

Nevada State Historic Marker for Hamilton, Nevada.

Photograph taken June 11, 2008.

Hamilton
The mines of the White Pine District were first discovered in 1865, and supported many thriving towns during the period 1868-1875. The most famous of these early towns was Hamilton, but there were others adjacent, such as Eberhardt, Treasure City, and Sherman Town. These communities, now all ghost towns, lay in a cluster eleven miles south of this point.
Hamilton, and its nearby cities, were established as a result of large-scale silver discoveries in 1869. Experiencing one of the most intense, but shortest-lived silver stampedes ever recorded, the years 1868-1869 saw some 10,000 people establish themselves in huts and caves on Treasure Hill at Mount Hamilton at an elevation of from 8,000 to 10,500 feet above sea level.
The city was incorporated in 1869 and became the first county seat of White Pine County that same year, and was disincorporated in 1875. In this brief span of time, a full-sized town came into bloom, with a main street and all the usual businesses. A fine brick courthouse was constructed in 1870.
On June 27, 1873, the main portion of the town was destroyed by fire. The town never fully recovered. In 1885, another fire caused the removal of the White Pine county seat to Ely.

Fairbanks Spring

Photograph taken 1-May-07.

During 1905 Dad Fairbanks and his sons finished their grading contract on the Salt Lake and San Pedro Railroad in Las Vegas. Since most knowledgeable people saw little future in Las Vegas, population 300, with no mining and little ranch land, Ralph J. "Dad" and Celeste "Ma" Fairbanks, with eight mostly grown children, moved to Ash Meaddows. Here the Fairbanks family opened a stage station to provide beds, food, whiskey and poker to travelers, which supplemented their primary business of freighting from Las Vegas to the boom towns. The Tonopah and Tidewater Railroad opened for business in 1907 and undercut their freighting business, causing the Fairbanks family to sell Fairbanks Springs and to move to the boomtown of Greenwater, California.

Devil Peak at the south end of the Mesquite Valley

Photograph taken 21-April-2005.

The peak at right is Devil Peak.

Devil Peak is a small (~2.5 km diameter) hypabyssal rhyolite dome that intruded into Paleozoic carbonate strata of the southern Spring Mountains (Guest, et al., 2007). It is also the probable source for megabreccia sheets, pyroclastic deposits, and obsidian rock avalanche deposits that make up the crest of Black Butte. These deposits are evidence for about 30 km of dextral slip along the Stateline Fault System.

Spring on Huntington Creek with Western Blue Flag (Iris missouriensis).

Near the south end of Huntington Valley, on the west side, a spur comes out of the Diamond Mountains. At the base of this spur is a large spring where I stopped for a time. I have checked Nevada state maps, and USGS quadrangles, and the spring has no name, but I would call it "Huntington Creek Spring" for its size clearly makes it the headwaters of Huntington Creek.
