A Beautiful Day in Northern Nevada
« on: March 02, 2017, 08:26:47 PM »
Finally getting a little break in the weather in between winter storms.  Just had to get the '69 out for a drive today. 

The mountains in the background are the Sierra Nevada with the highest peaks varying from 10,400 to close to 10,900 feet.  The pictures were taken in Gardnerville, NV (a little south of Carson City, NV in the Carson Valley (approx. 4750 feet in elevation).

It just doesn't get any better for taking the car out for a drive.

Great pics Richard. Love the lines of your car with those stripes. We still have snow here in SoCal, but it is a bit farther away.

Looks a lot like Prescott  ;D

My wife's sister lived in Reno, and she had a second house just south of Carson City in Gardnersville.   We looked pretty hard at houses around the Carson City area.  I always liked the Carson City area.  the elevation and average snow fall every year eventually pushed us further south into Arizona to find a house.  But I have to say I still love that area up there.  I never get tired of the drive up through Nevada to visit family in Reno.

Great scenic shots of car and background.  I'm on the western side of the Sierra Nevadas but at only 2,700 ft. elevation so no snow here right now anyway.
