Rving in Minden Nevada near Carson City

My husband and I spent 4 days in Minden NV in the valley below Lake Tahoe.  Even though it got to 90 degrees in the afternoon it was about 48 at night.  We stayed at the casino Carson Valley Inn which has an RV park.  We took 2 days and drove to different spots in the area.  On Tues. we went to Reno and Sparks so we could visit Sheels Outdoor gear, a wonderful sports store.  Then we drove past Reno to Verdi to go to Cabelas where I found some shorts.  The road work made driving around trying but at least we were not pulling our trailer.

Minden joins with Gardnerville so the next day both towns had antique stores to visit.  I bought postcards and other pieces of ephemera.  Nice shops.  This is my third visit and I still have not checked out the quilting store and the Yarn store.  There was a forest fire 11 miles from Minden but the smoke went the other way.  Our drive home is over the Carson Pass.   Here are a few items I bought on this trip.
I grew up near Venice but it did not look like this.
