Travel Plans Made

Location: Bordertown RV Resort (el 5,200 ft); Reno, Nevada

The stop here in Reno was a resting and trip planning stop. The campground is comfortable but the weather has been a mixed bag of rain/hail/wintermix. I still don't have a long range destination, but my short term plan is to head to Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and Glacier National Parks. I want to visit them before the on-rush of summer vacation people. I'm still a little too early in the year to avoid sub-freezing weather and snow fall in the higher elevations. Looking at the weather forecast, it appears that about the 3rd week of May will be the target date for Yellowstone. Until then, I'll explore the many National Parks and other special places in southern Utah. I haven't yet decided on the order or the time to spend in each. 

There are only a couple east/west roads across Nevada so I've decided to head east from here towards Salt Lake City. There will be two stops of 2 days each along the way. One at Winnemucca and the other at Wells. I will see what there is to see in each place, but mostly they are stop-overs. 


This is the snow that I woke up to today.
 I rode into Reno yesterday to see the town. It is like a mini-Las Vegas. I'm not much of a gambler but if I was, I think I would chose to gamble here as opposed to Los Vegas. It is a smaller town and much easier to get around. 

The sky over the dry lake near the campground was very pretty.

Clouds blow in quickly around here. One minute it is nice and the next it is raining or snowing.

This sign advertising "the biggest little city in the world" is kind of famous. This sign is the new one.

This appears to be the older one. 

Ya'll take care of each other. I'll Cya down the road.

  1. We just came across Nevada on 80. Stayed in Winnemocca at the New Frontier RV Park east of town. $17 with Passport America. Drove on through to Salt Lake City from there. Not much to do or see in Wells or any other city along the way. It is a long drive(350miles) but glad we did. Staying at the KOA on Temple Avenue. It is only 14 blocks from Temple Square. It is a nice park with good internet and TV. Heading down to Zion NP tomorrow.

    1. Seems I'm following your tracks. I plan to stop at that Frontier campground as well. The PA rate is hard to pass up. In Wells, I plan to drive up to Angel Lake. I've heard that is pretty.

    1. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to see all of the NP's in southern Utah or not. I need to wait a few weeks before Yellowstone and I'll see what I can see in southern Utah before heading north. Hope ya'll enjoy your travels, be safe.
