Re: “K. Dale/ 10/27/28” on the rock shelter wall.

This might be your man. He is buried in Big Meadow Cemetery in Lovelock, Pershing County.
Obit:
“Rights Held for Kenneth D. Dale
Lovelock, Nov 29 [1945]
Funeral services were held Friday at the Methodist church for the late Kenneth D. Dale, 46, Rev. Lewis Whitehead officiating.
Well known in Pershing county as a mining man. Dale died at Henderson. He was born in California, the son of Mrs. J.R. Gill of Lovelock. He was married to Miss Winfield Hanson in December, 1936, and they made their home in Las Vegas. He is survived by his wife , his mother, and a sister, Mrs. Helen Barnes.”
He died of T.B.

Thanks for the adventure.

How cool, Geologyjohn! Thanks for your research. Where the site is located prompted my guess that he was a rancher. Good job, fellow "ologist." :)

Thanks for the report.  I've put seeing the shoreline tufas on my todo list.  

 

Thanks for the kind comment, sfn! Please contact me prior to heading into the "sinks" of Nevada. :)

 

Great report thank you. Glad we haven't seen temps in the 100s yet. Just warming up to the 80s and it feels too hot for me.

Thanks Occidental! We appreciate the kind comment. We were surprised at the heat, in places, while on our trip. They were higher than the forecasts. We, also, are not looking forward to another summer of record breaking heat and all the issues compounded by the heat.

The fellow holds a doctorate degree. He is a historical mining expert, He has worked all over the west drilling and blasting to fund his hobbies and interests. He is quite the character.

Thanks for the additional info.

It's always fun to meet different/interesting people when out and about.
