from Beatty, Nevada towards Yosemite

One of the pleasures of a road trip without a fixed plan is surprise. We crossed over the California/Nevada border late yesterday afternoon and ended up stopping in another gateway town to Death Valley.

Beatty, Nevada, has a great Mexican restaurant where we enjoyed sitting outside at cable reels for tables as the day’s heat abated.

The town has seen more prosperous days, as indicated by this amazing sign opposite a now defunct casino/hotel.

Still, no-one need go thirsty in this town.

We had breakfast at Mel’s Diner before heading north towards the east side of Yosemite National Park, our day-trip destination for tomorrow. We’re lodging in a very cute and well equipped cabin at June’s Lake on the outside of the park for the next couple of nights.
