The scenery is bleak in some places and mesmerizing in others. So many exits with signs saying "no services".....no services or anything else as far as the eye can see!
I didn't take many pictures on the road, Beluga's windshield was pocked with dead bugs making for unpleasant shots. Well, I was compelled to take a few so please ignore the splotches and splats when you notice them.

We are at a bare bones campground in Wells, Nevada. The owner's are very friendly, the electric is good and it will be easy to get on the road in the morning.
Beluga took one of the few remaining spots and our arriving next door neighbors provided a good postprandial show.
The brand new Dodge pick-up truck attached to an also brand new fifth wheel trailer were pulled into the site by a huge tow truck. After much discussion, the wrecker detached the pick-up and drove away. As it was leaving, another huge truck, flatbed this time, pulled up and they are now in the process of loading the pick-up onto it. Poor people, no one wants to end their day like that, we feel their pain. I can't imagine being stranded here in Wells with no wheels...
