Hello to all of you......




It me again. Hope that you all have had a nice 2 weeks with out me? my trip went well. We spent 2 days in Elko, did some shopping, took the family to a bask restaurant, Kyle got a kick out of that. Spent the rest of the time at Wildhorse, its 60 miles North from Elko. The wildfires were everywhere, though we might have to leave because they were close. They came and took water from the lake a few times. It was hit and miss for the fishing. Trout and Perch, and 5 Black bass. But they were not big enough to keep. we don't eat the fish, just brought them home to people who do. Went out in the hill on back roads and explored. we saw alot of Antelope, not many Deer. While we were gone the old gas station that had been in my husband family for several year caught on fire. It was a sad sight to see when we pulled into town. The bar next door bought it from us and he made storage out of the office and someone set it up in flames, Why do they do that?

My trip was nice and the cooler weather was nice, Got a nice tan from sitting at the lake all day. My cats were happy to see me come home. Here are more pictures, Hope you enjoy them.

Looks very nice and refreshing! Sorry to hear about the gas station burning, kids probably huh? Such a shame, not a eye sore! That lake looks welcoming!

I'm so glad you had such a good time, Allison! I've missed reading your posts, though. I'm glad the wildfires didn't get too close to you. You took some great pictures!
