All photos taken on September 6, 2022. Sooner or later, every vacation ends and we all have to go back home to NORMAL.

Wilcox Ridge Hike – Part 3 -Wilcox Pass Summit to Wilcox Ridge Viewpoint

All photos taken on September 6, 2022. The last time we climbed up to Wilcox Ridge was October 2, 2020.

All photos taken on September 5, 2022. Not yet done with adventure for the day, we decided to take a ride up Pyramid Lake Road to the end of pavement and beyond.

What a Gas!

All photos taken on September 5, 2022. The first decision we needed to make today was what to do about the ongoing power outage. Suffice it to say, leaving PLR never entered into our minds. Remember the first item on the notice from the front office? We recommend filling your car with gas at thisContinue reading “What a Gas!”
