I'll be in Beatty Sunday through Tuesday morning.   Should have some free time Sunday night and Monday afternoon.    

Aside from being on the edge of nowhere, is there any recommendations?

If you headed toward Vegas from Beatty Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge is a neat place to walk around. You can see most of it in a couple hours.

The statues in Rhyolite are neat and so is the graveyard. Must do if your that close. There’s Also a bunch on neat mines in the Bullfrog Mountains right behind Beatty but that’s probably more time than you have. You’d need a good pack with supplies.Attachment Attached File

Yeah, I will not have any gear.   So any longer hikes will not happen.  

I fly into Vegas Sunday, stay two nights in Beatty, then fly out of Vegas on Tuesday.

I witnessed a car crash back in March.   It is in pre trial and I have to give testimony.  

I guess Beatty is the county seat.

If you go to Ash Meadows, take a bright handheld flashlight.  The last 2 times we went, you needed a light just to see into The Devil's Hole and The Devil's Hole II to see the pup fish.  One had algae over the water and the other was really shaded.  We usually visit there a couple of times a years and bring a picnic lunch with us.

If you like old fashioned candies, The Death Valley Nut & Candy Company has a lot of choices.  I guess they changed their name.

Jar of habanero stuffed olives from the little trailer on the south end of town.

I've driven in big cities across all of Europe and the US.   But it's been 20 years.

Trying to to 95 from the airport was stress inducing.  I am officially a bumpkin again.

My hometown has less than 10 stop lights.

I literally walked in the door and a guy handed me a beer.  It was entertaining to say the least.

I managed to hit everything on the list with the exception of the ammo cans.   I figured the tsa would shit bricks if I tried to pack them home.

Yep, used to hit him up on my return trips from Vegas.  Lots of oddballs I rarely (if ever) see elsewhere but too spendy for the standard sizes.

What sizes? I assume he buys them from a government sale website then sells individually to make double his money.
