The 4th

We spent the 4th of July in Beatty, Nevada. It's a tiny town where our friend Jordan grew up, and they have great festivities for the 4th.
We saw some strange sculptures,

visited the ghost town of Rhyolite,


saw some wildlife,



explored the "cheese holes",








saw the parade (they threw candy),




saw some interesting small town folk,












relaxed,







raced,







and watched a fabulous fire works show without having to fight any crowds! It was a fun weekend!
