My first stop was at the Lake Mead visitor center north of Kingman.
Flat Stanley was glad to get out of his pocket for a bit.
There was this great display in the visitor center.
The lake is amazing. Here's just one piece of it.
It started raining north of Vegas and pounded for mile after mile. It is a narrow two-lane highway without a lot of traffic. My plan was to make it to Ely for the first night but it was raining so hard I stopped in Pioche, Nevada.
Those of you who watch "Ghost Adventures" may have seen the episode filmed in that mining town. I pulled over and debated if I should stay at the Overland Motel where they had filmed an episode. Doug and I had talked about staying there sometime and I really didn't want to stay by myself but locals warned that with the bad weather the elk, horses and cattle would be migrating and the road to Ely was really dangerous.
Ghosts or pounding rain and migrating animals.
