Hello to all


These pictures were taken at Warm Springs. Yes this is a warm sping coming down from the mountain. Its at a junction where area 51 is at. Nice old mining site. Big horn sheep come down from the mountain to drink. Geocache is hiding out there!

Hope that you all are having a great weekend. I am on vacation in Northern Nevada at a place


called Ely, Nevada. This is an old mining town where they have found gold, silver, copper. There


are 2 lakes here that we will be fishing at. And as you can see I have the Internet so I will post


pictures as I get them. On the way up I did 2 rest stops and found 2 geocaches. We are 280


miles away from home and with the gas prices the way they are, this was about as far as we


could afford and to be able to take the truck and 5th wheel. Enjoy my pictures and I will update


as the week goes by. We will be home next Saturday.

Your photography is stunning not because of green forests and mountains, rivers and hills but because it really does show the country you are in with more than enough details about it and it is remote looking.

I have not seen the sheep in this area but have seen them in Arizona and goats too.

It is a wonderful photograph and would be great on the wall or the feature on a calendar or card.

I do my best to repay visits with visits and comments with comments.
