Mt Potisi

July in Nevada is usually never considered riding weather. However there is a slight dip in temperatures from time to time. I took advantage of the break in the weather and went for a quick Sunday cruise to the top of Mt Potisi.

 

Eldorado Valley Solar Farm

 

Heading through Eldorado Valley. This used to be a dirt powerline road until more solar plants started popping up.

Then I found the road to the top of Potosi. Going up the views got better and better.
