Desert storm

Preparing and agenda for an upcoming trip. Pleasanton to Barstow first day, stay in a hotel. 2nd day Barstow to Vegas for 2 nights at a Vegas style RV resort. Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, a little gamboling at night maybe. 4th day north on 95 to Beatty Nevada. We are on a quest for photographing ghost towns and abandoned mines.

I have hammers, chisels, buckets and hope to do some rock collecting.  We will dry camp somewhere in the desert that night. Next day up to Scottys Junction for more ghost towns. That afternoon should put us in Death Valley where I hope to snag a campsite. Who knows after that. Baja? East to the Grand Canyon? Maybe up 395 to Reno and back home on 80?
