Driving Nevada

Last month we drove from Vegas up to Sacramento, California. It was about a ten hour drive and rather pleasant. I like to drive, and the Nevada landscape is rather open and visible. We drove on a new road for us, I-95 north from Vegas to Reno, a rather empty road. Just thought I’d share a few traveling photos.

Last August we had some rain – yes, we count months when it rains as we usually get less than 3” (8 cm) a year total rainfall. August and December are our wet months, with most August rains coming in quick thunderstorms. Local plants have adapted, with a lot of flowers blooming right after rains. We planted a row of sage out front and they do look nice with their purple blooms.

Hey Joe, welcome back. :)

Those photos look great. Just lovely for a road trip. Our highways are totally boring, with scrubby grass and half dead trees as far as the eye can see. And the highway itself is shocking.

Great photos.
The sage in my yard does really great also. Even survived the snow and hard freeze.

cheers, parsnip

Nice photos! Reno is on the way to the Northwest so we take that road fairly often. The road up through Susanville is one of my favorites!

Haven't looked in lately; glad to see you are still here!
