Wildlife

I had the pleasure again today of traveling across Nevada whilst returning from a very enjoyable trip to Utah. I always enjoy the drive as the desert,high passes and various weather extremes are to a British driver an adventure in themselves. The Nevada highway patrol didn't fail to entertain either...though this time I know most of their tricks (especialy you crafty little sods in Elko) and had no need of my magic English drivers licence. After driving through my first ever dust storm family OTW where entertained by the sight (picture above) of migrating wild tumbleweeds....quite majestic creatures when seen moving across the plains in some no doubt ancient mating ritual....shame about the roadkill.

Thudly!

You were so close. Just one state up and you could have visited in Idaho!

Hope you had a good time!

Tumbleweeds are interesting to look at from a distance, but up close they're nasty thorny grabby critters! Also, at high-speed on a motorcycle you don't want to tangle with one.
