Time for a Little Break

HaRVy is currently comfortably parked on an RV pad at the home of our friends Rick and Leslie in Minden, NV. Thank you Rick and Leslie for making us feel so welcome. Your warm hospitality is greatly appreciated, plus it’s great to see you both again!

We are taking some time off here to get caught up on various projects and business. Some of these tasks can be difficult while always on the move. I am also working on getting rid of a bad cold. Nicer to do that with a home-base than in campgrounds. The view from their tub (below) isn’t quite as good as the one from the hot springs in my previous post, but it will certainly suffice.

The weather has turned cold again after weeks of warmer than usual temps and sunny skies. Currently we can see snow falling in the nearby mountains. Hopefully the forecast calling for the warmth to return in a few days is correct, as we plan to continue our journey northward soon. Now let me get caught up on the last couple of days travel before arriving here.

Our 4th uninvited passenger. Momentarily stunned after being caught and released.

Quiet and peaceful June Lake on the picturesque June Lake Loop drive we enjoyed.

Our last stop of interest was at Mono Lake (below), a large, shallow saline soda lake formed at least 760,000 years ago. Currently, the primary draw for tourists are the ” tufa towers,” calcium-carbonate spires and knobs formed by interaction of freshwater springs and alkaline lake water.

  1. I’ve read about Mono Lake – nice to see photos. I’m thinking you are adjusting to leaving the seashore, with all the beautiful mountains around you and gorgeous lakes ~

  2. Rest well and get over that cold soon.

  3. June Lake is pretty, Phil had a friend with a summer home there. Hope your cold is better soon – you just had a long break at Jeff’s – must be frustrating.

    • Not really, Judy. We are very comfortable here and have no definitely schedule.
