Reno, Nevada - November 12-18, 2007
These pictures were taken with my Fujifilm Finepix S9000 digital camera
on a trip to Reno, Nevada, and nearby places, November 12-18, 2007.
The main purpose of the trip was to
'07, but there was time for some exploring at the end of the

No pictures, just a long day of teaching and travel.

With the conference over, it was time to start exploring the area a
bit. I had never been much to the south and east of Reno, so I chose
to make a loop out that way. I left Reno [11
Pictures] and headed south toward Carson City, where I made a
quick stop at the state capitol [23
Pictures]. From there, it was on through the rest of US 395 in
Nevada [13 Pictures], to Topaz
Lake [9 Pictures], and across the
California border [5 Pictures]. I
continued south on 395 through several towns (including a lunch stop
in Bridgeport) and lots of nice scenery [44
Pictures]. At Mono Lake [27
Pictures], I decided it was time to cut back east into Nevada
[6 Pictures]. I took Nevada
359 [12 Pictures] over to Hawthorne, where
I saw part of the town and visited the Mineral County
Museum [27 Pictures]. From there, it
was north on US 95 along the west shore of Walker
Lake [32 Pictures]. Along US 95, I
passed through Schurz [5 Pictures],
through some interesting terrain [7
Pictures] to Fallon [8 Pictures],
then through some salty marshes [6
Pictures] to I-80 [5 Pictures].
Along I-80, I passed Nightingale Hot
Springs [3 Pictures], made a quick
stop in Fernley [10 Pictures], where
Hillary Clinton was about to make a campaign stop, then back to Reno
for the night [2 Pictures].

This was planned as a potential ski day, but warm weather and lack of
snow meant that was not an option. So it was off on another driving
tour. I got on my way out of Reno by
mid-morning [7 Pictures] and headed north
on US 395 [8 Pictures] and into
California [5 Pictures]. I turned west
onto California 70 [20 Pictures], and
stumbled across Plumas-Eureka State Park and the small town of
Johnsville [36 Pictures]. Back down at the
main highway, I went through the small town of
Graeagle [8 Pictures], then south on
California 89 [25 Pictures] to
my lunch stop in Truckee [23 Pictures].
I had time for a quick side trip to the north shore of Lake
Tahoe [45 Pictures] before heading back
along I-80 [19 Pictures] to
Reno [13 Pictures] for the night.
Sunday, November 18, 2007
Back to the east. There are a few pictures from the ride to the
airport in Reno [21 Pictures] and some from
the air from the first flight [20
Pictures]. The day's travel was pretty much on schedule, putting
me back in Hartford a little after 10, and home just before
