Date: July 7                                           Weather: Hot Arid

 Place: Winnemucca, Nevada                            From  Salt Lake City       

Via: Dusty gravel -loose academ road

Impressions: We made the greatest mileage today through the desert. Nevada is surely a wide stretch of waste arid land. Large ranches are visible on every side, but near the road one can see nothing, not even a house or an animal. The ranches being situated farther in. Large rolling but barren mountains form the skyline and nothing but desert grass and sage brush seems to grow. The thrill of the day was the salt fields which lay in thick white folds like ice. It  was great.

We put our clock back 2 hrs today.
