The benefit of waking up early.
Probably the least desirable RV park, thus far.
Not a terrible view, in spite of the gravel parking lot.
Another long, boring drive through the desert. There is so little to look at, so the time passed very slowly. We saw a couple of donkeys (or maybe they were burros), but other than that, not much in the way of wildlife. The empty landscape was occasionally filled with yucca trees (Joshua trees) and some small cacti.
Lunch break. No crowds. No waiting.
We were so bored, we started to pay attention to all the semi trucks as they flew past us. We couldn't get over how many Sherwin-Williams trucks we saw. Far more than FedEx, UPS and Amazon!
The RV resort is at the edge of Pahrump, with mountains to both the east and west. We got settled and got the A/C going. This park has 2 pools, a horseshoe pit, pickleball, a club house, RV wash area, laundry, fire rings, a fitness center, and a vineyard with free wine tasting. We had very good WiFi, but uploads and streaming weren't allowed.
Another gravel RV park, but at least this one has trees.
Pretty evening glow on the mountains.
(I think these are the Spring Mountains)
Another pretty sunset.
I would love to know what this is.
