Pickin' Up a Pickup Finale: Thunder Mountain
Liv's obsession with Basque food was still holding strong, and when we hit Winnemucca around nightfall we decided to go straight to the restaurant at the Winnemucca Hotel. Their Basque meal was even better than Louie's and we ate at a long table with a couple of other travelers - two kids just coming back from Burning Man. They were funny hippie kids- kind of a weird mix of Burning Man and Tea Party. Liv burst out laughing as soon as we left, pointing out that the guy had obviously been tripping on acid the whole meal. I hadn't noticed.
Watts Towers and Reverend Howard Finster's Paradise Garden. Liv and I were both amazed that we'd never heard of it before.
