WELLS, NV TODAY

We are in Mountain Shadows RV Park in Wells, NV tonight.  Interestingly, we put on exactly the same distance as yesterday, 500 kms (300 miles) precisely.  Those should be our two longest driving days.  Tomorrow will probably not be much over 200 miles to Mountain Home, ID then about 263 to Pendleton, OR.  The last two days should both be under 200 miles.  We aren't big mileage people as you can see.

I spotted this Hedgehog Cactus blooming while out geocaching the other day.  There was just one plant in the whole area that had blooms.


There were lots of Ocotillo blooming

That's us cradled in the Mesquite tree

I wandered out in the desert for sunset every eveing



Just after crossing the Colorado River from Parker into California, a fleet of California Highway Patrol cars came along clearing the way for this super wide load.  I suspect this was a part for the hydro installation at the Parker Dam. 

I was intrigued last night in Alamo by this tree that has such a large diameter but isn't very tall

I wondered if this was the result of some fighter jets playing.  Taken at 6:12 pm.

At 6:30, this was still visible, strange!

A couple of pictures looking east up above Alamo, NV



Once again the trees in Alamo were host to many Turkey Vultures


Being that Alamo is close to the ET Highway, I wasn't surprised to see this pickup up the street from our campground.



78 miles to Wells, NV

Big sky country on Nevada 93 all day

Wells is just beyond the far snowy peaks which are about 50 miles away
