We left Alabama Hills yesterday under clear blue skies and warm temperatures.

It was a pretty drive and we did eventually drop down to warmer temperatures 🙂

At one point two military jets buzzed us. I took this picture with out putting out the telephoto lens!

We plan to spend two nights in Minden, Nevada which is 11 miles south of Carson City where we will head today to do our grocery shopping and maybe do a little gambling … cause I think that is what you should do when you are in Nevada 🙂

Until next time …
