    After the awards dinner...we where back on the road. A 5 min. stop in Reno then back on the hwy.

    We made it all the way to Lovelock NV before stopping for the night. It was off again early Sat. morning on Hwy 80 crossing Nevada.


    With daytime temps in the 90's ..the fuel pump was giving us issues again. We stopped in Elko for lunch and let the pump cool off in the only shade we could find.

      Logan sits at the base of the Bear River Range on Hwy 89. If you find youself there...swing by Jacks open fire pizza...we highly recomend the "chuckwagon" mmmmmmm good!

        After a 38 mile climb up the Logan River (camp sites along the river where closed due to flooding from excessive snow run off) you find yourself over looking Bear lake.


        A new visiters center and an awesome view

              Still following Hwy 89 into Jackson Hole WY for lunch.



              Our "Cool little car" drew just as much attention from the visitors as the antler arches in town square




              even this guy had to stop and point it out to his son

                          Looks like a great road trip in a Mini. I am looking forward to ours in August, though its not in a Mini.
