|LITTLE ALEINN..Love this tow truck with a flying|
|On the road again...|
We pulled over about 1330 and had salad for lunch which was awesome as it was so hot outside. The drive from Echo Canyon to Tonopah was so beautiful and hardly any traffic which we really like! Wide open spaces!
I snapped pictures as we drove, even though we've been this way before I just can't help myself.
|Love the roads out here!|
|An oasis in the desert..yuky looking but I don't think it'll|
bother the cows..Highway 6
|Well, they made it..glad it wasn't nighttime and someone|
going 75 mph..thinking it would be a hard stop..free range
|I just liked them|
At the junction of Higway 6 and 375 we saw a girl pulled over with her hood up. It was her and her mom, they were just returning from Zion NP when the truck quit. No cell service out there so we called NHP when we had service and a little later actually saw Highway Patrol coming down the road. Ken slowed and pulled over, she turned around and knew what we were going to say. She said we were the third person to let her know about the women. Said it was nice that so many people cared about them. Later we saw a tow truck headed that way :)
We pulled into Tonopah Station just about 1700. Got one of the last two pull throughs! They have some back in sites which by the end of the evening were totally full too! Amazing, we saw rigs that had to head down the road somewhere because there were no spots here. A lot of baby boomers out and about, nice to see! Ken offered to take me to dinner here, but I've opted for breakfast. It's only about 2 1/2 hours home which makes for a nice day.

Great drive home, except it was really smoky not sure where that's coming from. We got home right before 1300 and it's so HOT! Unloaded the trailer and frig and now just relaxing. Tomorrow morning when it's cooler we'll finish unloading and get the laundry done.
