I’m not sure I have ever been to a Nevada state park before? But I headed out of Vegas and I wanted to check this area out, as well as the boondocking possibilities around Overton, which is in the same area. I thought I had driven through this area years ago, but nothing so far has looked familiar. I had planned to go north from Henderson, but that plan ran into difficulties shall we say.
They have a $10 day use fee just to drive through, but it was the only road going that way, and as it turns out, the scenery is worth the price.
I also found some very nice campgrounds, for an additional $10 a night, or $20 more if you want an electrical site.
As you may know, I’m normally not a ‘campground’ type of guy, but this place is pretty spectacular and has some good hiking, so I think it is worth it. So I set up camp and set out at least one of my satellite dishes!
But at the same time, the card in my camera inexplicably failed, and I could not take any photos. A bit ironic, I thought. Luckily, I had off-loaded all the photos to the laptop the night before, so no photos got lost in the crisis.
But here I was in photographers heaven, with no camera. Well, except for my iPhone! So, that called for an emergency trip into Overton, where Radio Shack was glad to sell me an overpriced 2GB card. But no complaints, I am back in the photo business, just in time for the sun to come out in the afternoon, which it did.
And I took way too many photos to post here, so they will have to wait till tomorrow!
