|Strange sitings in the dessert.|
|Jill hates clowns so I made her drive by this creepy Motel.|
There is a huge lake in the background. I didn't see one living thing. No ducks, birds or people. I googled to see what the problem was. It's called Walker Lake and it is a natural lake fed by snow melt. But there are mineral deposits from the surrounding hills that are killing the fish.
We passed several ghost towns which were boomtowns in the early 1900's when gold was discovered. Town with names like Goldfield, Mineral, etc.... now have collapsed buildings and mountains in the background scarred with mining.
Another interesting place we passed SHADY LADY RANCH. It is a legal brothel/prostitution house. I can't believe men drive all the way out to the middle of nowhere to get laid!
Once you get through the dessert, you come across the greenest ranch lands with a winding river. Picture the Ponderosa on BONANZA.
Then up through a gorgeous pine covered mountain and into the Lake Tahoe area.
|The next day we found out there was one boat tour of the lake. Luckily I brought my London Fog. It was so cold on deck and at one point snow flurries!|
The above photo shows VIKING MANSION built in the 1920's in the Emerald Cove.
