Day 1 Paradise Valley NV- Fall Colors!

Spent the night in Winnemucca, trailered the bike to Paradise Valley, dropped wife and kids here at the Mercantile with some other local kids. They immediately became part of the community.



The old Micca House around the corner. Paradise valley NV.



Part Ghost Town, part ranching town, like a lot of Nevada


Abundant Fall colors exploring some canyons just West of Paradise Valley



Then Blasted North up the scenic Hinkey Summit...

Looking South back to Paradise Valley and Winnemucca.
(All shots from HTC Cell phone, soon I'll get a real camera...)

Up to Granite Mtn. just west of Hinkey Pass


Then off (East) to Mahogany Pass...

Near Lye Creek Campground

Looking West back towards Granite Mtn. Near Mahogany Pass (Calico Mtns)


Then Greeley Crossing Rd back to Paradise Valley...

..where the KTM 350 EXC-F w/ 13/48 trail gearing land speed record was set...80 mph...for many miles...melting the turn signals!


Had to cool my jets and monkey butt in the'Blossom Pot' Hot Spring near Paradise Valley on the Humbolt River.

Too hot here, need to find the tub....

Algae Blooms="Blossom Pot" name. Crystal clear deep hot water.

Here it is... THE DRILL-Leave hot water pipe out of tub! Only add hot water as required, otherwise it's much to0 hot.....NICE!
Back to family and new friends in Paradise Valley...


and the Sat night Prime Rib Special! sorry too hungry to think of a pic...

Here's a Map of the Loop
