Nevada Fence Art

We are in Nevada in the basin and range country.  It is beautiful.  It shouldn’t be too hard to figure out where Dart is.

Where’s Dart (4)?

On the way to the park today, we had the option of going a direct route on a dirt road over the mountain or on a paved road around it.  Regis got to decide.  I would have bet my whole life’s savings on his response.  He chose the direct route.  He said if we were going to take the other route, we could have got a Smart Car instead of a Jeep.

We disturbed a small herd of elk who thought they had the mountain to themselves.  It was an interesting ride.  We didn’t see anyone along the way.

On the way back from the park, we had the opportunity enjoy some Nevada fence art.  Here are a few favorites.  Notice we had another alien encounter!  He didn’t have good wifi access either, But he did have a coffee maker and a kick ass boom box!

Nevada art. That appears to be the skull of a cow inside this old car.

Not far from our campground, we went to visit some ovens that were used to make charcoal in the mining days.  We had lunch there and went on a short hike.

On the way back, we saw this Pronghorn.  She appeared to be alone, so I wonder if she had a little one tucked away somewhere.  When looking at this picture, I realized she has very skinny legs.
