Roads, Caves, and Hikes

As planned we headed to Great Basin National Park.


We managed a tour of the Lehman cave which we enjoyed. Such bizarre shapes!

We camped overnight and the next day did a hike up Pole Canyon and back down Baker Creek.


There was quite a bit of snow in spots and we did a certain amount of post-holing, but it was nice to get out and stretch our legs for half a day.

When we were at the Sacajawea Hotel they had a book of historic hotels and I noticed the Mizpah Hotel in the old mining town Tonopah, Nevada. It was a bit off our route but we decided to check it out. Interestingly there is a big solar energy project near Tonopah - the Solar Reserve Crescent Dunes project. There were quite a few people associated with the project staying at the hotel.
