Now onto our travels...We spent the last week dry camping at Washoe Lake State Park, between Reno and Carson City, NV. Virginia City, NV was a short drive away. Here are some pictures from there.
And here is the view of the Reno area on the drive back down from Virginia City.
One day we went to the Nevada State Museum in Carson City.
This is a painted rock just down the road from our campground. Pretty interesting...
The view of Lake Tahoe from the highway from Reno, where we reached elevations of nearly 9,000 ft!
In Reno, we spent over 3-1/2 hours here:
The river runs through the center of Reno.
The view of Washoe Lake and the campground from the top of a hike we took (Deadman's creek trail).
It was an experience dry camping. The campground had restrooms with showers. Each day we ran the generator for a couple of hours to charge the batteries. One of the little white dots just to the right of the center is our Big Sky. And we did some cooking outside, although not as much as we'd have liked because it was quite windy most of the time. We did go into several casinos, twice to have lunch and once into Harrah's in Reno to gamble. We lost the two dollars we bet.
