Where I stayed
Whiskey Flats RV Park
We headed north along Hwy #95 through a very bleak part of Nevada. Ghost towns abound and the residents that cling to life in these parts don't seem to be prospering. We had planned to stop and get some pictures of the buildings in Goldfield, a mining town struggling to stay alive but when we stopped for lunch and checked the weather on the Internet we discovered that the bad weather to the west was moving in faster than anticipated
By the time we got to Mina we were out of the worst of the storm. The campground just north of the town of Hawthorne had a lot of flowering fruit trees in bloom. I hope the cold weather doesn't freeze the blooms.
