Where's Belmont? I've read about it but forgot what area it's in.
its in Monitor Valley-- generally 1/2 way between 50 and 6. Diana's punch bowl, potts ranch, northumberland pass (and cave!), pete';s summit road (w/ toquima cave and spencer's hot springs ((best in state)).
also, just north of belmont about 10 miles is Pine Creek-- hands down the best camp site in central nevada--
we've stayed here at the B&B in Belmont. nice place..

We usually take the short drive over to Manhattan, NV to visit one of the 2 or sometimes 3 open bars. By back roads, from Belmont to Mahnattan about 30 minutes.
