Walker Lake, Hawthorne, NV

PB060034  We had another beautiful drive through the Nevada desert yesterday in search of warmer weather. We seemed to have stayed just ahead of a cold front, and when we arrived here at Walker Lake it was probably 70 degrees. We actually put our chairs out and sat outside for a couple hours for the first time in a long time. It felt wonderful!


The cats even got to play out in the sun, which they loved.

We are parked at Sportsman’s Campground, the closest to the town of Hawthorne, but there are 2 other camping areas several miles north.  This is BLM property, and since it is a developed campground with tables, vault toilets and garbage dumpsters, there is a $6/night fee to camp. No hookups, water or dump, though, but after 3 nights in bad RV parks, this was just too pretty to pass up. It was 37 when I got up this morning but we had a great sunrise over the water. On to Pahrump today where it should be even warmer.
