I don’t know that I’d say that getting there is half the fun, but I will say that getting there is a lot of fun. We do short travel days when we RV, since neither of us can stand up and walk after long ones.

Walker Lake

Near Hawthorne, NV.

Little A’LeInn

This fascinating place is on the Extraterrestrial Highway, near Rachel, NV. I didn’t take any photos there, mainly because the winds were wild and squirrely and would blow a person away. They have a few RV spots and some cabins, as well as a gift shop/restaurant that seems to be pretty popular. We went in there and had rhubarb pie with ice cream. I’m very picky about pie, and almost no place passes muster as far as I’m concerned. But this place had some delicious, legitimate pie! If you ever visit Little A’LeInn, go for the pie. Be forewarned that you probably won’t have cellphone signal for most of the Extraterrestrial Highway. You probably will have signal while you’re eating your pie.

Mount Carmel RV

Near, (duh!) Mount Carmel. AZ.

Cracker Barrel in Kingman, AZ

I’m always looking for a Cracker Barrel, and this one was a good one. They’re really nice about letting people in RVs park overnight for free. We always have dinner and breakfast in the restaurant when we do this.

Diaz Lake Campground

This is an Inyo County facility, and it’s near Lone Pine, CA. You can get reservations through Reserve America, or do what we did and take your chances as a walk-up. The campground is fine, and we were only spending one night, so we wouldn’t have been too picky. It’s a lovely location, and it seems to be very well managed.

Topaz Lake

Topaz Lodge, near Garnerville CA, holds a special place in our hearts. They have a little general store near the gas pumps that has a chocolate case. That chocolate case has wonderful turtles! Nuff said about that. We’ve stayed there a few times, in the RV park (they sell spots for that in the general store). This last trip, we ate in the Lake View Coffee Shop inside the casino. This turned out to be a great decision. By the time we got to Topaz Lake, we’d been out nearly three weeks and were ready for some serious food (cooked by somebody else!). We got that. For dinner, we both got chicken fried steak, the portions of which were so big I could only eat half of mine and got a to-go container for the rest. The next morning, we came back for breakfast. Bob got vanilla French toast, which he said was very good. I got biscuits and gravy, which I know I shouldn’t eat but nearly always will anyhow. That was a good choice. I read some complainy reviews online about service and food in the coffee shop, but I found no fault at all with either. Food was great, and service was excellent.
