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 I was disappointed at the outdated bathrooms and fixtures found in this LQ)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 again...you 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!!
