Mount Tenabo


The summit of Mount Tenabo, in Eureka County, Nevada, sits at 9154′ above sea level. Cortez Hills Mine, owned and operated by Barrick Gold, rests at the base of the mountain venerated to some extent by the local Western Shoshone tribe.

While out on an afternoon family excursion, my oldest child and I scrambled up a ridge in a canyon nearby. We both had fun, and he revelled in exerting some energy by climbing rock ledges and boulders. We found a simple cairn at the top of the summit.


It was a good diversion, nothing crazy, but it was a good bonding moment with my boy. Love to make these kinds of memories.
