We have found Home for a little while
WHERE ARE WE? Government Wash, Lake Mead Nevada
NEXT DESTINATION? Probably Pahrump Nevada
Well today we arrived at Lake Mead where we plan to hang out for a couple of weeks while we wait for some our friends to escape their wintery grips and join us here. We anticipate that our friends Pat and Harold will join us in 10 days or so. They have hired River Rock Transport who we used to transport their Motor Home over the border today. They fly to Grand Forks tomorrow morning to pick it up and will start their winter journey there. Our friend Kyra, better known as the boondocking queen, hopes to start her trek south from Washington State next week I believe. We hope to meet up with her early next month. And friends Chuck and Angela hope to start across the country from Illinois fairly soon and we hope they will come hang with us in the desert. Friends Ed and Lessie may get to Arizona before we head farther south into Mexico. There is some indication that we may see more of our friends very soon. I will tell you more about that at a later date. Anyway, this was our path today.
In the last two days we have been in and out of Utah, Arizona, and Nevada a few times as our travel path jigged and jogged. We knew we were in Nevada when we saw the Casino signs.
And when we were in Arizona we could tell because of the very pretty overpasses.
And in Utah we would see Latter Day Saints Churches. We went through some more beautiful country today with mountain passes and expanses of rocks and the red rock of Valley of Fire. Every corner there was more eye candy.
We arrived at Government Wash about 1 pm and immediately set up our chairs and laid back and took in a little sun.
The weather looks good for the next while except for some wind early next week.
There are lots of coyotes around here this year. They are howling right now between us and the lake and the neighbour said he saw one run right by our Motorhome earlier. I will try to get some pictures if I can. But for now here is the view out our front window tonight. I think the lake is down about 8 feet from what it was when we were here in 2018.
Well we had a great afternoon setting up for a little longer stay than we have been. Hope your day was as great as ours.
