    Alte coole Hütte nach 901 km

    June 2, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Unser Nachtquartier ein uraltes Casino.

    Im Casino kann gezockt und geraucht werden, das ist eher unangenehm.

    Heute haben wir 901 km auf den Asphalt gezaubert wie das ging wissen wir selber nicht ganz genau aber es ging und das ganz gut.

    Catchup [Great Basin NP]

    May 29, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 55 °F

    Lorraine finally got to visit Great Basin National Park in Nevada after detouring from our road trip last fall for knee surgery. Definitely worth the wait as this park offers one surprise after another in the midst of the Nevada desert-- snow in June, lush mountain hillsides, a glacier, abundant wildflowers, scant numbers of campers.Read more

    High Ice [Great Basin NP]

    June 5, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 57 °F

    After a blitz trip to Reno to see Hunt's mom, introduce her to her only great grandson, Elliot, and his mom (Sarah) and attend his nephew's wedding we headed back to Great Basin NP. The main goal was to take a pilgrimage to see the highest elevation grove of bristle cone pines and the lowest latitude glacier in North America. Hunt had seen both last August but this time around the glacier approach was downright technical as we plowed through multiple snowfields to reach the moraine holding the glacier.Read more

    Wheeler Peak, Great Basin National Park

    June 19, 2015 in the United States

    At 10,000 feet in the desert lies an island of conifer forest with streams. What a stark contrast with the vast desolate basin only 5000 feet below. The temperature is about 20 degrees cooler.

    We got to our destination pretty late last night, but was able to find a nice camping spot inside the park in their overflow campground. After almost 4 weeks of camping, this was the first night we paid for lodging! The price was only $6. Nevertheless, it felt weird to pay to do the same things we've done for the past 4 weeks: legitimately park somewhere overnight, eat and sleep. The park's four campgrounds fill up fast, especially on the weekends. We got permission to park for free in a private lot across Silver Jack Inn tonight.Read more

    Bristlecone Pine Grove

    June 23, 2015 in the United States

    Hanging out with the oldest living organisms on earth! A Bristlecone Pine Grove, trees that are as old as five thousand years living at 10,000 feet in Great Basin National Park. Reached via Bristlecone Trail, a 4 mile loop with 600 feet elevation gain from Wheeler Peak Campground.

    Ely NV KOA

    November 13, 2016 in the United States

    The KOA was a little bit of a parking lot, but when you are one of three or four residents, you can really focus on the setting. We hit here about sunset, oohing and ahhing at the light on the mountains around us.

    Day 3 in Ely, Nevada

    April 1, 2018 in the United States

    The first 320 miles today was a breeze. I got the check engine light and had a wide spot in the road and pulled off. A 15 minute delay to reset the computer and we were back on the road. Another easy 20 miles to the KOA where we are spending our last night on the road for a while. I am anxious to see my family in Las Vegas. We should have an easy drive (only 205 miles) tomorrow before we set up at the Desert Eagle RV Park on Nellis AFB. Suzi and I are truly blessed to only be having minor setbacks on our first extended trip. Life is good.Read more

    Great Basin National Park

    October 16, 2016 in the United States

    We've traveled for days avoiding the rain and storm only to have it catch up with us with "high wind advisory" warnings. Having already experienced a Santa Ana wind accident, we'll lay low until the winds relax.

    We spent yesterday in the Great Basin National Park. The park itself was fresh, clean, caulk full of hikes. The idea of the great basin was of interest. All the water that falls in this vast area (covering most of Nevada, 50% of Utah, into CA, Idaho, CO and Mexico) stays in this basin. There are no outlets for the water. Due to the isolation, many species are native only to this place.
    I'm not sure if it was my imagination, but the land around here looks healthier than it has in the past. We stopped at a "ranching exhibit" along the highway and it explained the efforts of science and education to rehabilitate this land from the ranching practices of the past. Could it be true that it is already making a difference?? We also witnessed Global Warning Monitoring sites. I guess not everyone in this Mormon country has their eyes closed.

    Just for the record: We did use our OnStar services yesterday. Although we didn't actually see the accident, we did clear the top of a hillside to witness truck parts flying all over the highway. Two pick-ups had just had a head-on. I stayed with one driver until help (from 70 miles away) finally came. "Might have fallen asleep at the wheel", he said. Both drivers were pinned in the vehicles. I wonder if Shane will ever walk again...........
    The next vehicle would have been us. It's very sobering.

    So today, we're staying out of the wind and planning an early exit tomorrow.
