Pahrump, Nevada

Blooming Cactus

At least Desert Palms RV Resort was quiet, we both slept like babies. It is a beautiful place with lots of BLM land around for hiking but their pet policy put a damper on our enthusiasm for the place. When I checked out, I discussed the pet policy with the person at the front desk and explained that making pet owners feel like lepers was not going to encourage repeat business. As usual, I got the , "well some pet owners spoil it for everyone," statement and while I know this is frequently true, don't penalize those of us who do follow the rules with our furry children, penalize the culprits by not allowing them to stay in your park. OK, I'll get off my soapbox!
We pulled out of Salome, AZ about 9:30am and headed for Pahrump, NV. We have always wanted to visit here and decided to make it one of our stops on our way home to Montana.
Charleston Peak RV Resort and Winery is a beautiful spot; a Western Horizon resort but with our new CampClubUSA membership, we can stay for 2 nights at half price. Our site backs up to the desert with a beautiful view of the mountains which have snow on them! There are great places in the desert to walk the Jazz dog, too. Tonight we went to the ever present Nevada casino and tried out the Mexican buffet. It was not too bad. There is also a RV resort at Terrible's Casino that has a beautiful setting on a small lake with sites that back up to the lake. We may try there after our 2 nights are up here at the Winery if we decide to stay and explore the area some more.
We drove through beautiful desert today, lots of Joshua Trees and blooming cactus--another wonderful day.
