On this trip the section of US 395 we are concerned with runs from Kramer Junction to Reno, NV. And the part we are on these days has been blasted by severe cross winds, making driving tough for Suzy. But Suzy and Rosie are a team, and they've done just fine. Thursday we made it as far as the small town of Inyokern, where we had arranged another stop from the Escapees Club's Days End listing.
This is a private home set on two acres, with a delightful view of the Sierra range. The owners, Philip and Patricia, have room for a visitor's RV, with water avaiable, a 15amp hookup, and a sewer dump to use on your way out. They also have two dogs who are gentle, loving, and mind their manners.

|The pond holds small fish and assorted aquatic plants.|
|The vegetable garden starting to show: carrots, chard and lettuce.|
|Greens for your salad.|
|These are Dorper sheep. They shed, so they don't need shearing.|
We joined them for happy hour.
|That's Phil on the left. His hat reads "Hat goes on top."|
|Gotta fire that photographer. He nearly cut me out of the shot!|
|And so good night in Inyokern.|
Owens Lake is now a dry lake supplying minerals which can be used to make glass. But they also pollute the atmosphere. In fact, north winds rushing down the valley yesterday nearly obscured the view of the mountains from our place in Inyokern.
Now for a week we are staying in Lone Pine, near where Al and Kelly of the Bayfield Bunch boondocked for a while, and not far from where Russ and Donna of Travels in Therapy romped just weeks ago.
This is our home for a week, a very nice park, right in the shadow of Mount Whitney, at 14,497 feet the highest point in the contiguous United States.
