My parents-in-law drove Caleb, Josie and I on a five-day trip up to Reno, Nevada. Our main reason for going was to visit Caleb's grandmother, who turns 90 in December. She was thrilled to see us, and especially to meet great-granddaughter number 12. We also got to do a bit of sight-seeing up and down Highway 395, as well as stay in historic Virginia City in Nevada. Here's a few pictures from the trip.
Josephine was a pretty good traveler. She spent a LOT of time in that car seat, and only really lost it once.
Grandma Fate (Caleb's mom's mom) with her great-granddaughter. They're just 89 1/2 years apart in age. Grandma was thrilled to get to meet her.
Me and Caleb in Virginia City. Its a preserved old Western town, complete with regular shoot outs, guys dressed in cowboy gear and enough saloons to quench the thirst of the entire state. We had a nice day wandering around town and enjoying the local fare. Caleb's aunt and uncle live just outside town, up in the mountains, and we got to stay with them. Its a beautiful setting.
Relaxing in the hotel in Bishop on our way home. We'd left Virginia City around 9:00 a.m., met more of Caleb's extended family at Lake Topaz for a while (Caleb even did a little water skiing), and then headed to Bishop. We tried to see Bodie and Mono Lake on the way, but arrived at both spots after they'd closed.
Caleb and Josie in Bishop. We'd just visited the Galen Rowell gallery. He was a prominent photographer of the High Sierras and other iconic California scenery.
