A great first trip to the Black Rock! Actual meeting location probably the Cassidy Mine Site. Several hundred people will be meeting for a variety of tours, activities, and speakers in the Black Rock Desert about 100 miles north of Reno. Hot Springs Visits too! We’ll have a Dutch Oven cook-off, kid’s activities, tours to various areas, and expert speakers on the history, geology, and activities of the area. Leader is very familiar with the area.
