t’s November and it’s time to wrap up the lower 48….. A one state camping trip seems so weird, but it has to get done or I won’t be able to move on to complete this goal. I’m heading to Las Vegas after work, I’ll be spending the night at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and then heading out for a one night camping trip in the “Valley of the Fire” State Park in Nevada.
My morning view out the hotel window, interesting a Ferris Wheel in Las Vegas.
Some scenes from the Valley of the Fire State Park.
Because I will be leaving early tomorrow for Death Valley and it will be too dark for picture taking, I decided to take pictures tonight before it gets dark.
As some of you know, CAMP50 is a solo bid to camp all 50 states but the most important part of this journey is not the completion of solo camping all 50 states, it’s finding the happiness I’ve been looking for at the end of the journey. The broken pieces of me, will be no more and I will have found my “True Self”. I’m almost there and there’s nothing in my way.
The road leading towards Death Valley National Park.
Scenes from the Rhyolite Ghost town just outside of Death Valley. Rhyolite Ghost town is managed by the BLM (Bureau of Land Management). Stroll around, check things out, imagine what life might have been like back then, BUT never take any souvenirs from here…………………………………………………..NEVER
Time to explore another National Park.
Salt Flats in the Badlands.
This completes the Lower 48, time to take a few months off and rest. It’s truly been an amazing journey, nothing can change the things I’ve seen or the places I’ve been. Sometimes I think of those things from my past, the people and how I felt about so many things that weren’t good for me. It’s time to let go of all of that, and move forward to a happier life.
