Cody and I needed to get outdoors and explore in the mountains. We ended up discovering some new dirt roads and seeing some beautiful wild flowers. We had a picnic, went on a hike to the top of a mountain, and later went to Caliente, NV. In Caliente we were able to go into the shops along a quaint western style shopping strip. We bought some used books, a piece of wood for Cody’s camping cook chair and had dinner at the Brandin’ Iron Restaurant. It was a great day.
