Washoe State Park
Our last day together with John and Tina at the lake and we went for a Wine Tasting trip on The Virginia City & Truckee Railroad. The weather turned quite cold but that didn't stop us.
The staff dressed up in period clothes.
The scenery wasn't anything too special. Mostly desert but the river was pretty.
Tina and John, Cheers! The wine was just ok but lunch was pretty good.
(thanks Tina for letting me borrow your video!)
Not sure what it's supposed to look like but it was broke.
We couldn't help doing a little grandson shopping in the gift shop. Cute and so soft!
The temperature dropped to 37 and it was windy and cold on the way home.
Looks like it snowed a bit on the peaks.
We took a drive out of the US to a New Country! On the way we saw this boulder pained like a dog.
LINK to a few more and to explain how they exist.
Here is the website for The Republic of Molossia.
We weren't able to get through Customs.
Even out in the desert there is quite a bit of green and some fall color along the creek.
The color of the lichens on the rocks were very pretty too.
They were all decked out for a festival. Soon the famous Coffin Races will be held later this month.
St. Mary's in the Mountains Church. We've been inside before and it is amazing.
We drove back home through the small mining communities along the way in time for dinner out.
Really big sites.
Someone is showing off for the ladies!
