Oregon Trip, Day 1 -- November 16, 2011

Day 1. Drive from Las Vegas to Silver Peak, NV. Stops to watch birds at Corn Creek, Cactus Springs, and Torrance Ranch, plus a stop to watch drone aircraft (unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs) at Creech Air Force Base. I camped in the desert near Silver Peak, NV, and the night was very dark and cold. It would have been a good night for a campfire.
