Laurie invited me to an easy (5 mile) daytime (about 95 degrees F) walk (scramble over "unimproved" trail) to visit Independence Monument. We managed to get within photo range of the stone pillar's base before turning back in search of a Dairy Queen.

Tomorrow, I plan to stop at a forest camp near Austin, Nevada. Wednesday, my trip planner has set up a slow ramble through the mountains near Lake Tahoe before rolling toward Castro Valley to visit with my grandson and his parents for a few days.
