Aug 6, 2019 - Kershaw-Ryan State Park, Caliente, NV

Our next stop was a state park in Nevada. Kershaw-Ryan SP is located near the cool town of Caliente. We spent two nights here. Our site had electricity and water. We used the dump station at our departure to empty our holding tanks. We were surprised to find out that the showers cost money...so take your quarters if you visit! We hiked the Canyon View Trail and saw some beautiful sights. Even saw what I believe was a track of a mountain lion. This park was a very beautiful and peaceful place to stay.

Luckily, Rog had his tools and took it apart so neither the sign nor the camper touched each other. It’s all good.

We did gas up in Tonopah, NV which borders Area 51 of alien fame. Tonopah was a lunch stop on my college choir spring concert tour in 1973. The town has not grown. Forty five miles out of town we...
