(nr Tonopah AZ)
A short two night stop was made boondocking near the town of Tonopah. A local landmark called Saddle Mountain is surrounded by BLM land that allows dispersed camping.
There are four side roads off the paved highway leading to campsites. However, I didn’t want to explore in order to find the best location. The site I chose was plenty good enough for a short stay.
The rocky one lane track was not suitable to go very far with Tardis. So, I found a spot just a little way in. I was satisfied with it being fairly level and having a good view of the mountain.
Looking at the shape of the mountain, I wondered which part inspired the name. There were at least three crevices that reminded me of a saddle. A bonus was the 5 bars of Verizon 4G LTE internet.
