We're back! Okay, we've been back for a while but we've been in recovery mode. Anytime we take a road trip somewhere it takes us a week or two to get back to normal. We had an early start to our trip and we well into an hour of driving when we realized we were going south instead of east. Apparently , both Jesse and I can read driving directions worth a lick. We missed out turn about an hour beforehand. We had to double back and keep a close eye on the GPS app. Man, it wasn't great that we lost an hour and half but at least Jess was okay with it. The drive through the east side of Nevada is a lot more scenic than through the southern part of Nevada.
Once we got on the 95 our trip was back on track ;definitely not on schedule because we weren't going to make up the lost 2 hours. We went through this small town called Hawthorne. We kept seeing huge mounds and warehouse from the distance. Once we got closer we learned that the whole valley floor is used store munitions. It was really amazing to see whole valley floor covered in munitions. That's 226 square acres covered in bombs, chemicals ,and artillery shells.
We pulled in and checked out a neat little munitions museum they had there. It had some really impressive antique shells and deactivated bombs. I was so wrapped up looking at everything that I forgot to take photos of the inside. I did take these photos out front.
It was a fun little stop. I was worried about "wasting the time". Growing up, whenever we went on a road trip my father would always drive straight through barely stopping to even take a bathroom break. Whenever I travel with Jess, I can stop wherever and whenever I want. It's nice to have a considerate husband who won't get mad because I need to pee.
I think I'm going to make this a two part post. There's too many photos to fit in one post. It's suppose to snow this week. It's nothing compared with the Mid West is suppose to get but it'll be nice to see some snow on the ground.
I leave you with a photo of my handsome Ridley being a sexy cat. Hope everyone has a great week.
