|Mason and friends, ready for Homecoming! 💙|
Sunday morning during breakfast I asked Ken what his plans for the day were. Well, he was thinking about going for a drive..ok I'm in. :) I had been thinking the same thing but since it seems lately we're always heading for Carson or Reno for doctor appointments. This was a fun drive, not for business!
I made tuna sandwiches for a picnic lunch, not knowing for sure where we'd be. We hit the road and headed for Aurora, Nevada. We've heard people talk about it, as there's a mining operation and a well kept old cemetery there.
|This house was 20 miles in on a dirt road...but I could live there|
it was so cute!!
|The Walker River! Love it!|
We headed out of town and then turned off on a nice gravel road. Some of it we've been on before, but then it turned into new uncharted territory. A beautiful drive. A well maintained gravel road for a few hours. A person here and there, friendly, everybody waves :) Eventually we got to the intersection which would take us to Bridgeport or Hawthorne. If we continued straight we'd be at Aurora!
|Love the changing scenery!|
|We're going to find it!!|
About 5 miles down the road we saw the sign to the Aurora Cemetery. Surprisingly there were a few other people visiting the cemetary. It really is a nicely kept place, for being so remote. It's obvious some group must come up on Memorial Day or something and place silk flowers on every grave :)
|This grave was surrounded by a castle.. :)|
|I loved the way the gates were put together!|
|1999 was the burial date|
|Thought this was cute! And so true!|
|Really old fencing..|
|Our "white trash lunch" back of a tailgate :)|
Once we were done looking around, it was time for lunch. We used the tailgate as our table and just enjoyed the simple sandwiches, chips and of course an adult beverage. It was special you know?! haha
Once we were finished, we headed out towards Hawthorne, NV which is about an hour from home. 22 more miles of gravel, dirt road and incredible scenery :)
|This rock reminds me of Cathedral Gorge State Park..NV|
|Right across was lava rocks!|
|That's the road we came up on!|
|Walker Lake, NV..|
We arrived home just about 1600. A great day all the way around. Ken decided we might as well end the day with a fire outside. A great way to end the day :)
|Sun going down!!|
Today we spent the day getting ready to head out to Washoe Lake State Park, keeping our fingers crossed we get a spot! It used to be a well kept secret, but no more!
|Cheryl (dau in law) sister Kim has been staying w|
them for a bit. Today Bryan turned sofa upside
down to fix the feet as they are sliding on the floor ..and only took
Kim a minute to turn the couch into a bar! HAHA..
Nice job KIM!!!
Here in a bit we're heading over to Karen's for a short Happy Hour as we've still got things we want to get done.
Have a great evening!
