There's plenty of long and lonely stretches Out West. Traveling north out of
on the 2-lane blacktop of US-93, things get pretty scary for an RVer. The
voices on our tape dramas begin to loll one into a (dangerous) trance-like
state. Oh, it's time to be off the road and resting up. But where?
Just south of the berg of Alamo is a big (by
Nevada standards) lake,
Pahranagat. The lake is the centerpiece of a National Wildlife Refuge, and
serves as a stopping point for migratory birds. It's also a great stopping
point for migratory RVers, and happily, the stopover is free. Bring your
fishing pole, but leave your generator off, your hosts thinking that gennies
make too much noise for man and beast.
Still, the views of the lake are soothing, and on our early August stop, we didn't mind not using the generator as a spanking breeze came up and gave us natural cooling action. Here's a video of the lake taken from our boondocking site:
