We are exploring Carson City this afternoon. It's just about crystal clear here.

Lucy is still camped in Minden. We took off this morning and drove up to Carson City which is only about twenty mile north of Minden. Carson City is the Nevada State Capital.

We made several stops in Carson City to pick up a prescription, buy a new printer for Lucy, and get some office supplies.

We also looked around town for a bit, and visited the State Capitol Building and some other historic sites, including the Ferris home about two blocks from the Capitol. George Ferris, Jr. grew up in this house, and went on to become civil engineer and the inventor of the Ferris Wheel.

We had dinner again this evening with our friends Ron and Jane at Red's Old 395 Grill in Carson City.

We got back to Lucy well after dark and settled in for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- Capitol Lobby.
- Ornate staircase in Capitol Building.
- SuEllyn and Brian in front of the Governor's Office in the Capitol.
- 1871 Nevada State Capitol Building.
- Ferris Home.
- Tree starting to show fall colors.

If you are still at the Carson Valley Casino and into a really good French Toast, try Katie's Country Kitchen in the casino. Also if you have not already visited, go check out Virginia City east of Carson City. Very nice old mining town.

I second this. Love Virginia City. It's very touristy but lot's of history too. Hoss and Little Joe would approve.

A couple of years ago we were in Reno the weekend of the balloon festival. It wasn't planned, it just happened to be. It was rather dramatic to see the early morning launch. The balloons looked like giant fireflies. But the air races would have been more exciting to me. Very exciting infact. Fred would love them. He would honk a few for sure.

PS Rotate computer monitor 90 degrees clockwise for best viewing. Or, rotate head 90 degrees counterclockwise.

Lucy remains camped in Minden. We had intended to head up to Reno today, but decided instead to tour Lake Tahoe.

We went across the mountain from Minden and crossed into California. We started our tour in the South Lake Tahoe area. The area was loaded with tourists, and it was slow going. We made our way around the entire circumference of Lake Tahoe in the clockwise direction.We went through all the little towns on the Lakefront. It took us most of the day make it back to Minden.

It was a nice tour. The visibility was pretty good, but there was some smoke haze present from the fires in Central California.

We made it back to Lucy before dark, and settled-in early for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- Topiary in Minden.
- South Lake Tahoe beach.
- 1960's trailer.
- Sno-Flake Drive-In.
- Fire hydrant with snow marker.
- Paddle-wheeler in Emerald bay.
- Emerald Bay.
- Town of Kings Beach.
- Back in Nevada.
- New Airstreams on flatbed in Casino parking lot.

I picked up on your travel log late in your journey. Looks like you are having fun. You are approaching my neck of the woods. What is your destination? Sorry if I missed it in an earlier post.

No, you didn't miss anything. We don't really have a destination. We are kind of planning to be back over in Wyoming for the Moose Rut. We are thinking about doing a little touring in southeast Idaho on the way.

There are two things that we try to avoid on our Airstream Adventures, schedules and Interstates. We are not even sure when we will return to Florida. We probably won't head home for another month or so.

Lucy packed-up in Minden, Nevada this morning and headed north. We went up US 395 through Carson City and on to Reno. We got Lucy a campsite at the Grand Sierra Resort RV Park.

We had enough time today to head out to the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center which id about 20 miles east of Reno. This where the Tesla Automobile Company is building their new ten million square foot manufacturing plant. We only got to see it from a distance, but it was still quite impressive. The Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center is massive (107,000 acres), and is the largest facility of its type in the United States. There are already a number of plants and warehouses in the center.

There was another very interesting aspect of this giant industrial center. There are still a large number of Wild Mustangs that run free on the same land with the factories. We were amazed how many we saw. We hope that there are some plans to relocate these guys as the industrial center becomes more built-out.

We still had some daylight left and we looked around Downtown Reno for a little while.

We got back to Lucy before shortly before dark and settled in for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- Smoke from the fires in California was spilling over into Carson City today.
- Decked out Airstream in casino parking lot.
- Tesla Plant.
- Airstream rebuild.
- Wild Mustangs
- More Wild Mustangs.
- Spider car in Sparks.
- Reno Bus Terminal sign.
- Downtown Reno.
- Reno Arch Sign.

The system is again having problems uploaded photographs. All of my pictures for today failed to upload. I will try to upload them in the morning.

Brian

Reno has a very good classic car museum. We spent the whole day there maybe 10 years ago.

Haze comes and goes here. Some days, actually most days, my eyes are burning.
