We left Dutch Flat, CA yesterday morning continuing our drive on I-80 east, and started driving up hill, topping out on Donner Pass at 7,227 feet above sea level.  Marilyn took pictures of snow caps, etc.  DSC02558DSC02559DSC02560


Then it was time to drive downhill towards the Nevada State Line.DSC02565DSC02566DSC02567DSC02569


We continued on through Reno, DSC02571 and spent the night at High Desert RV Park in Winnemucca, NV.  I never heard of the town before, except for Hank Snow and Johnny Cash’s “I’ve Been Everywhere” song. 


This morning, we left Winnemucca, NV continuing east on I-80.  There is plenty of nice scenery, even if it includes bugs on the windshield.  DSC02574DSC02575  Continuing into Utah we could see the Great Salt Lake Desert.  (Even though it looks like snow, it is Utah, not Alaska).  DSC02576DSC02579  We even saw this rock in  the middle of the salty desert that looked like a giant sturgeon.  DSC02583  We continued on and got a glimpse of the Great Salt Lake, along with this salt mining operation.  DSC02586DSC02589


Hugs, and Type at You Later.
