The day I was to leave, I sat there enjoying my cup of coffee in the morning light of the playa. Suddenly in front of me a couple hundred yards away there appeared what I thought was a large dog loping along by itself crossing the great expanse of the dry lake. Great. Someone's dog is lost. It will never survive out here. I picked up my binoculars and was very surprised to see it was a deer. I have never seen an animal cross the playa before as it is 10 miles wide and 40 miles long. I have never seen a deer anywhere in this part of Nevada. Pronghorn Antelope yes. Here this fellow crossed right in front of me soon after I was back on the road.
After awhile and many miles later I came across this old homestead. I am bad about having dust on my lens and was just about to eliminate the speck above the building on the right when I recalled a bird had flown into the view as I snapped the shutter. You may notice three specks off to the right in the green...more pronghorn.
It was well posted as private property KEEP OUT so I respected that even though no one was around for miles. I would have enjoyed nosing around inside.
That's another bird in the distance above the roof.
This little town which had not many more people than the speed limit, added a personal touch to the speed limit sign. Now how could anyone ignore that?
