... walked past the old trains "Nevada State Railroad Museum" and watched it all for a while. Did the tourist walk - then ended up at a bar "Firkin & Fox". What a surprise - it rained again. It was 35 minutes back to the motel, but we timed it well and did the entire walk without getting wet.

... Lake, a rest stop with not-so-nice restrooms. Comedian Pete said women may use the men's room but be sure to leave the seat up! To stretch our legs a bit we took a lovely, flat, paved, shady walkway to the lake. Tenaya Lake is quite large and beautiful. We did see a lot of small flying insects we thought were mosquitoes but they didn't seem to be biting---thank goodness.
