Our memorial weekend trip to Nevada

This past weekend a friend Maciek and I decided to do a tour of Nevada.
Of course no trip is started without a stop here.

We took HWY 50 over the Sierra's.

Here you can see Lake Tahoe in the distance as we start our decent on the eastern side of the mountains.

We headed east on 50, past Fallon and took HWY 121 9Dixie valley road north. This road is paved for 30 miles before it turns to gravel.






This trail led into one of the many canyons in the area.


A little bit of exploring around the area led to a few of these tanks. Put here by the army to train pilots to spot enemy tanks.






All that exploring and we had to go for a beer and some gas, which was 50 miles away. I think the beer was needed more than the gas.

Our Our mission was to find the hidden hot springs, which had an awsome view as well as super hot water.
Our camp came fully stocked with firewood which attracted the wildlife in the area.











It's a tough life.
