Ely, NV to Elko, NV

What a beautiful drive.  My friend told me to be careful on Highway 93 as there was nothing out there.  He was right… nothing but snow-capped purple mountains majesty, blue skies, open rangeland that stretches on forever.  Best thing I saw though… and could not capture on film was an eagle on the ground with some prey in his claws… having at it.  Gosh I wish I could have caught that image.  Safe in Elko tonight, enjoying the lower altitude and warmer temps.


I did a video clip of the mountains but have trouble loading video to my blog.  I will work on it.

In 2006, I was shopping for a wheelchair. By 2007, I had new knees, better health and by 2008 a kayak. In Aug 2013, I kayaked my 49th state, Alaska, at the Holgate Glacier and in May 2014, I kayaked Hawaii, my 50th state, to celebrate my 70th Birthday and the finale to the wonderful adventure of Kayaking America? Next up... Solo Hiking the Arizona Trail, 820 miles? Maybe. Still healing from shoulder and trying to decide.
