Our day started out cloudy and cool, I met up with the guys in Sacramento. They headed in a southern direction, while Mike and I headed west on a more direct route.
After we got over the pass, we passed through some beautiful mountain desert landscape. Still a chilly 58 degrees but better than 28.
HWY 375, the famous (and deserted) extraterrestrial highway.
We had dinner, then bellied up to the bar. The bartender was friendly but a few of the patrons were…more than special (cue up music from Deliverance). One guy was combing his goatee while staring at the waitress. Ew. Not long after we decided to go to our room (half a trailer house) and call it a day.
The next morning we woke up to dark skies and high winds. There seems to have been an alien invasion overnight.
About 10 mikes in, we caught a glimpse of the front gate. Before we knew it, the so called “camo dudes” or men in black, we’re on us in the white keeps. They watched us closely to be sure we were not going to cross the line.
We behaved ourselves for the most part , but we did take photos even though all the signs said not to.
From there, we headed on to our final destination, only 3 hours away. We rode through high winds and some rain but finally got to our campsite around 3. And here was our view from our camp site:
