Day11 ride for Mr. Giraldo and the next major town lies 48 miles further away [110 miles] than the 62 miles he rode yesterday to Fallon, Nevada. So, what will he do today? My guess is that he stops enroute. Maybe at Cold Springs [60.8 miles] or Eastgate [55.2 miles], depending on whether he chooses the northern [longer/flatter] route of the southern [shorter/hillier] route. There is also Middlegate [47.1 miles] just before Highway 50 bears off to the left. Earlier I did a Google Earth flyover Highway 50 to Austin—quite an interesting route. You can’t tell a lot from the graphic below, but here is a Google Map of the topography. Austin sits just off the map, to the east, at the base of Mt. Prometheus
