Jan is admiring the view of Walker Lake, NV before we begin to drive up the Corey Peak road.
She did not have any admiration for the large, really large orb weaver spiders that inhabited the brush near the beach. 100,000's of them. Webs everywhere.
We drove a little bit further down the road and there were fewer spiders.
Jan is a lot more relaxed as she again poses next to Walker Lake.

Sweetwater Mountains from Sweetwater Pass
Northern edge of Sweetwater Mountains
Ridge above Desert Creek headed for Jackass Flat
This was our Sweetwater Mountains camp next to Desert Creek.
This is the last section of road before reaching the summit of Mount Patterson (11673 ft). I decided to hike instead of driving and soon discovered that there was a sketchy off-camber section (before this shot) that was better to have avoided with the FWC mounted on my truck.

Sunrise at Leavitt Lake
Relaxing along the shore of Leavitt Lake
A chipmunk relaxing next to Jan at the lake.
I passed this waterfall on my way to the summit of Leavitt Peak.

Crossing Coyote Ridge
High above South Lake west of Coyote Ridge.
The view from the our chairs with Mount Johnson center left. Visited the summit in 2002.
Early morning at Funnel Lake
Looking at the claws on this rodent, it is a good thing that they are only four inches tall rather than four feet. (at Funnel Lake)
Road to Baker Lake Trailhead
