We left Caliente Friday morning and went to Vulture Peak Rd via Gila Bend.  We found a nice quiet area to dry camp.  Great area for walking as there was next to no traffic and lots of birds and rabbits to entertain us.  We moved from there to Chloride, AZ yesterday and up to Alamo, NV today.  We had a pretty good drive through Las Vegas this morning.  Probably the quietest we've ever had for traffic and the new route 11 bypassing Boulder City was really nice.   Can't accuse us of putting on too many miles in a day!  Tomorrow will likely be our longest travel day at 464 kms moving up to the cold in Wells, NV.  Probably five more days on the road before we get to Pentiction, BC where we will hang up for a few days at friends.
The first set of photos were all taken along Vulture Peak Rd then we get to the Chloride photos.

Lots of old buildings

Not all the buildings are old and run down

A nice quiet dog, doesn't disturb the neighbours
