Lahontan State Rec Area
(This blog is from October of 2019)
We had a couple of weeks after leaving Carson City before we meet back up with John and Tina at the Italian Festival in Reno. We are always wanting to spend more time in areas of Nevada we haven't been so we chose to stay at the Lahontan Reservoir in Silver Springs.
We had a great site on the lake surrounded by trees and sandy beach. Plenty of sun for our solar too.
We didn't kayak but I tried fishing and that was a bust.

The blue dot is the location of our campsite.
We learned that we would be crossing paths with Gary and Leesa so we made a date to have dinner.
Our mornings and evenings were spent walking along the beach. It's so peaceful here.
This is the "toaster" that my family used when we camped when I was a kid!
We walked around and read the plaques describing the fort, its use and what the buildings were.
Colorful quilting squares on the barn.
The old hotel.
It was a full day and we had a beautiful sunset and 1/2 moon to finish things off.
There were fences around them to keep grazing cattle out.
We finished out trip with a visit to an ice cream parlor.
