We finally were able to make it to the final summit and then continue our way to our stop for the night. Lone Pine, California. Oh yes I forgot to mention, the first little town that we came into as we passed from Nevada to California was showing $4.14 a gallon for gas. The station in the valley of Death Valley was showing $4.54 and all this is for Regular. Here in Lone Pine and on Highway 395 we are looking at $3.68…this could be a tough summer for us “travelers”. On the first corner coming into Lone Pine stands a “Visitors Center”. We pulled into it to see just what might lay ahead of us on the route we have chosen along 395 to Reno. The young man and another young lady that were there to help us did one of the best jobs of making sure we had what we wanted. It’s not that we haven’t had wonderful people working in those positions that we’ve encountered all over Europe and here, it’s just that they really went the extra mile. Tonight we are camped in Lone Pine and sitting at the edge of the water of Diaz Lake. When we pulled in, we were the only RV here, but just as we were firing up the barbecue, another RVer pulled in beside us. This is a state park without any hook-ups, but for tonight, it’s just great.
