We went back to camp and just enjoyed the rest of the afternoon. That evening we had a wonderful fire and dinner. The stars are so incredible there!
Next day I packed a lunch and we headed up the peak drive. It was definitely cold up there. It's about 10,500+ feet. The ride up was gorgeous, the aspens in their glory even though we think it was better last year. Of course they just got snowed on so that probably accounts for a lot of that. Either way a beautiful drive!
Warning: Aspen Trees Ahead!

We walked around the campground and then we decided to head back down the mountain thinking we'd stop at an overlook and have lunch but we ended up back at camp for a late lunch. A beautiful afternoon and evening again.
Yesterday we got going about 1030 and headed over for Cave Lake State Park only a little over an hour and half drive. Got a beautiful campsite and had lunch. We've been here several times and just love the scenery and the sites are big too! They have showers there, but we have ours with us. $15.00 a night for Nevada residents.
Ken bar b qued some pork and we enjoyed the fire and stars here too. This morning we took our time getting ready because we were only driving to Ely (about 15 miles)..We're back at the RV Park from last week, and are going to enjoy a nice Mexican Dinner this evening.

We'll get up early and drive home tomorrow. It's been a really nice mini vacation, but time to get Ken back to work on the bunkhouse!
Come December when Ken turns 65 (ahhh)..we can buy a pass for $30.00 a year and it gets him into any NV State Park and camping for FREE!! If the park has hookups it's only $10.00 a night! Nevada does have some beautiful State Parks and this is a nice benefit.
Don sent some pics of Linden, TN a small town that does a World War II reenactment every year. This little town obviously gives their all to make this happen!
Diane and Jesse were in TN for the week so they could visit Don and attend the Raider's game..I think they visited every brewery and fun place in Nashville!
