Field Trip Day 1: Getting There

Just a few more photos from the western Nevada field trip I went on earlier this month: driving to Reno on Highway 50, then on the bus from Reno to Winnemucca on I-80.
Wonderful spring flowers just east of Bob Scott Summit, looking south toward some of the snow-capped peaks in the Toquima Range, including Mt. Jefferson, the sixth highest peak in Nevada (sometimes called third).
Here, I'm headed straight for a large dust storm, which was south of the highway at Fallon, so I missed going through it.
I'm on the bus, now, passing by one potential thesis area from long ago, on my way to the area I studied. This is Rocky Canyon of the Humboldt Range, with the white cliffs being part of a granitic stock.
