Caliente

Marc took Nevada Day off, so we had a three-day weekend together. We didn't feel like we wanted to make a long drive, and after exploring some options, we decided to check out the Eastern part of the state. Nether of us had been up highway 93 before, so we got a hotel in Caliente, NV, and decided to explore that area.

There are five state parks in that area and we went to three of them, along with Pahranagat, which is a national wildlife refuge. We didn't see a lot of wildlife, but saw some pretty areas. It was a relaxing weekend and I got my share of "pretty" nature for awhile. Here are some pictures I took.

There are lots of tree pictures here because I was enjoying the beautiful Fall colors and leaves that were not palm fronds.

We had a nice time, saw some pretty things, ate some good food, and just relaxed. Happy Nevada Day!
