We like to keep our travel days to no more than four hours, and usually three, but sometimes weather forces our hand and that is what happened today. Our plan was to drive from Twin Falls to Ely, NV but the weather in Ely was below freezing and windy so we made the decision to do an almost seven hour day and push onto Almo, NV. Alamo through to Bullhead City is expecting wind tomorrow afternoon but we should be tucked in for the day before that happens … anyway that is the plan … and we all know what happens to plans!
There was very little traffic on the road when we pulled out of Twin Falls but the sky had some nasty albeit pretty clouds.
But there was hope on the horizon with some sun sneaking through 😄
However most of our drive went from occasional sun peaking through the clouds to dark skies and some spitting rain and then back to sun. It was a pretty boring drive today, just long and straight roads.
We even had snow on the side of the highway around Ely, NV.
But it wasn’t long before we dropped down in elevation, the snow disappeared and the sun came out in full for the rest of our drive to Alamo, NV.
This will be our last night of cold weather and waking up to cold morning temps, we are now on our way to mid 20’sC/high 70’sF … yippee!!
The most interesting thing to happen during our seven hour drive was this spooky cloud over Area 51 … hubby thinks there is a space ship hiding in the cloud 😁
Hubby’s theory is probably way more interesting than what I found on the internet but in the interest of full disclosure this cloud appears to be a Lenticular Cloud which form when strong, moist winds blow over rough terrain, such as mountains or valleys … but it was spooky that it was over Area 51!
Until next time …
