Thursday Travel Tails - Nevada

 This week's Travel Tails takes us to the State of Nevada! 
 Nevada is the home of Lost Wages, where our Mama and Daddy go sometimes. Arty and I did NOT get to go through Lost Wages, we were up at the northern part of Nevada. 

Northern Nevada has some very interesting scenery!

 We saw a beautimous sunrise with vibrant colors!!

We traveled alongside railroad tracks next to what looked like big piles of dirt.
Mama said they were mountains.
Umm Mama, mountains ARE big piles of dirt!!

We love the way the brown mountains look against the green valley!

The mountains seemed to go on forever and ever!

We enjoyed the rain storm we saw on one of our walkies when we got to our hotel too!!

 In Nevada, we stayed at the La Quinta Inn in Reno. Although it wasn't Mama's favorite hotel, we liked it! 
(from Mama: this is the only LQ Inn 'not Inns and Suites' that we stayed in during our trip. It was clean (albeit a bit "wet dog smelling") but an older, more run down motel.  The recent LQ's I have stayed in have been totally renovated. I was disappointed at the outdated bathrooms and fixtures found in this LQ) 

 But Mama...the walkies were fantastic!!!

 The LQ in Reno is easily accessable from the freeway and is adjacent to a school and neighborhood suitable for daytime (and sunset) walkies! 

The grounds of the LQ are grassy in most areas yet, their dog area was dirt....what the what?? Mama always carries poop bags though, so even if we did go potty on the grass, no one would ever even know!

 The bed was just right for a nice game of tuggy before bedtime!!

 ...and we all had a good night's sleep,
and that's what matters, right Mama?

 What can we say about the rest stops in Nevada?? One word comes to mind....
Now, you may not have guessed this, but I am a girly girl when it comes to going potty...I need a nice patch of grass in order to take care of business. 
Like California, the only grass we saw had "No Pets" signs. 
We may...or may not have broken the rules. If we did break them, once would never be able to tell!!
(From Mama: Although Dory's facilities weren't to her liking, I felt very safe and the human facilities were clean and usable)

Arty, Mama and I always had a blast doing photo shoots and people watching during our breaks from the road. 

 All in all, Nevada was a very nice state, 
we would love to visit it again!!

Join us next week when we visit  the magical state of Utah!!

Napa Valley Flowers Friday!!

 Welcome to another Flower Friday!! This week, I am being very nice and letting Mama show you some of the flowers she saw when she and Daddy went to Wine Country last week (without ME)!

She and Daddy started their trip with dinner on a TRAIN!!

 She did a bunch of walking around the small towns of Napa and St. Helena and saw lots of pretty flowers.

I like to take walks Mama and I would have LOVED to see those flowers!! 

She saw also saw a bunch of cool fences with flowers too!!
 Pretty entrances...

 ...arbors with roses

 ...and picket white fences in front of the houses

I bet there was tons of peemail on those fences
(That I didn't get to read!!!)

 She visited wineries with flowers too!!

 This is her most favorite winery, St. Supery.
I hear they are DOG FRIENDLY Mama!!

 She thought about Mayorz Murphy and Stanley and their Mama when she saw this Sunflower!!

Maybe next year she and Daddy will take me with them to Wine Country!!
