We got home yesterday about 1600 from Great Basin NP. Nice ride, weather interesting and even more so after we got home. Think we got more rain in a couple of hours here in Yerington than we got all season. So it was an awesome homecoming.
Love to go but it is nice to have our little home to come back to even if it is only for a few days. Saturday we'll head over the hill and spend Saturday and Sunday night at Bryan's house for his 42nd birthday.
Adam has his permit, his driving instructor can't get to him yet but is supposed to go by the high school tomorrow and sign something off so he can get started driving with all of us. He wants to go to Folsom Outlets on Sunday to spend his birthday money, so I'll go with him and let him practice driving the Tundra....brave aren't I ?! No he won't be driving in major traffic to start just some of the back roads..

|Kershaw Ryan State Park..then it's snaky an overgrown after|
these stairs..so that's what changed our mind and we
headed for Great Basin..
