the wandering chick
...Highway 95

Normally, when I'm driving my RV and pulling my little toad behind me, the last thing I want to do is pull over to the side of the road.

But leaving Oregon and crossing into Nevada on the Highway 95 had me braking...and breaking my own rules. Traffic was light, almost non-existent, so I felt okay about pulling over for pictures. Had I been in the car rather than the RV, I'd have stopped a lot more often, but the terrain all the way down to Hoover Dam and Las Vegas is absolutely breath-taking. Here are some shots I couldn't pass up.

Oh, and by the way, the Oregon portion of the trip had me stopping, too, and those photos can be found on the Oregon home page. There's a link to it at the bottom of this page.

a scenic north-south drive
mountain range
I am not good at looking at a map and matching the mountains that I'm looking at to what's printed on the map. The distance to the mountains from the road and the direction they're facing are deceiving. So, unfortunately, I do not know the names of this mountain range. All is know is I was approximately 60 miles north of Tonopah and they were on my right (which would be west...which means they could even be in California! )

The Colorado River between the mountains
The Colorado River snakes its way through the mountains just south of the Hoover Dam. The remaining shots were taken south of Hoover Dam on the Arizona border.
