Yesterday we departed Las Vegas for Pahrump NV, where we will start our tour of the Grand
Canyon and the national parks that surround her in a few days. A small city on the eastern edge of Death Valley, it is surrounded by Charleston Peak and Red Rock Canyon on the southeast and more desert everywhere.
Our new park – Nevada Treasures RV Resort is big with well equipped sites for coaches our size and even outdoor grills and trash pickup – won’t I miss my daily walk to the trash bin? A lovely two level pool has attracted us already with ample shaded sitting areas. But it’s hot – 100 plus and the doggies are not happy about walking on asphalt so we will get creative and keep walks to a minimum and at dusk.
Last night we took a chance on a restaurant located in a golf community in town and had a terrific meal. We haven’t been eating out much lately so this was a treat. The Mountain Falls Grill Room offered a lovely setting, delicious seafood and great service. We loved it and may try to get back before we leave the area.
Here are a few shots taken during our first drive through and to Pahrump. Below you can see Charleston Peak in the distance. And the sunsets here are pretty spectacular too.
Red Rock Canyon – aptly named.
