Shelton NWR

After another lonely stretch of desert driving from Winnemucca, NV, I turned onto Hwy 140, towards Oregon, and discovered a free night's camping at Virgin River in the Refuge, along with a warm springs pools, and bath house with shower. Several fish live in the pool, so I used my camp shower, then had pasta along with a spectacular high desert sunset. A few mosquitoes but it got cold pretty quickly after dark, so I had a warm night sleeping in my van.
What an unexpected treat to find in this remote region. This is the pool at 7:30am, where my only company poolside was a puffy quail.
