Scotts Creek NF
Back to our special place in Hope Valley. A place we can relax before heading to other directions. This is just southwest of Lake Tahoe in the National Forest. Perfect boondocking for us. On the edge of a meadow and forest, near several lakes and hiking trails.
Look at the size of that slice! Enough for all four of us!
Me, Rose and June.
Randy, Mike and Steve. Dinner then we were on our separate ways.
Our first campfire together. Amazingly they are still allowing them. I have a permit.
A little Port at our fire. So nice!
Ack! Look at the size of this beetle!
The next night Tina got the fire going!
We enjoyed our hikes along the river and did a few geocaches that Tina hadn't found yet. My brother even came up for the day an we drove his Ranger up to Scotts Lake while John drove his motorcycle.
Our boondocking site.
The Aspens were showing off for us. As much as we enjoyed our week here, it was time to move on. John and Tina and us were headed for a few days at Washoe Lake State Park. They now have added some electric but we took the non electric so we could be close to each other.
Their site just down the road.
We have a nice, large open site. Since we have solar, it's no problem.
Tina gave me this nice pillow! I love it!
Some time at Shoe Tree Brewing in Carson City.
Lots of wild horses here at Lake Washoe State Park.
One day Tina and I took a hike up to the overlook of the lake. It follows the creek for a bit.
Towards the top you get many nice views of Washoe Lake below.
The gazebo at the top.
Memorial stone we came upon at the top.

More wild horses at the bottom in the campground.
Our last day we drove in to Carson City and took a tour at the state capitol building/museum.
It's a very pretty state capitol in the middle of a park.
The state of Nevada at it's doorstep.
Sara Winnemucca, defender of Human Rights, author of the first book by a native woman.
Lots of minerals in Nevada. So much to see here. We had a great time.
So much beautiful marble throughout. The floors and walls.
View of the top of the capitol.
