I had such a good time in the Searchlight, NV area the day before, that I decided to stick around for a second day even though I hadn't planned to. There were plenty of interesting peaks in the area to keep me busy but the one I was most looking forward to was Copper Mtn which I had seen quite a bit of that first day. I was mostly tagging a bunch of summits found in Purcell's Rambles & Scrambles, but with extra time at the end of the day I picked up a few others not described there. Dupont Mtn turned out to have the best scrambling, though short compared to Copper Mtn.
I showered off a dirt road on the west side of the last peak, surprised to find an SUV drive by in the middle of my shower. It was the first vehicle I'd seen off the pavement all day and only the third or fourth car I'd seen in total. They didn't seem to mind my nakedness too much......
