The hardest part about leaving Las Vegas was moving away from our dear friends and family. When we learned that John's dad would be in Northern Nevada for a tooling class, we seized the opportunity to have a family get-together in the most unlikely place--Elko, NV.
I didn't think we could find enough things to do in the old ranch and mining town but as it turned out, we barely had time to cross some things off our list by the time we left town. We didn't have enough time to check out everything we wanted. Well...there's never enough hours in the day when you are spending it with family.
While we were there this weekend we ate at several great places, visited museums and historical interests, and John and I got to ride our bikes up Lamoille Canyon through the scenic Ruby Mountains outside of Elko.
It was a full weekend and we had so much fun!!
Donuts n More. The sandwiches were good; made bread freshly baked in-house but for $8.00 a sandwich a la carte, one would expect a little more meat than a few slices. Lunch was still nice because it was with two of my favorite people!
Machi's Saloon & Grill. Inside the cozy restaurant, the place was packed. They were unusually busy that night (we were told) but the staff did a great job even though it took us a while after we were seated to get our drinks. Good thing Dad urged us to make a reservation or we would have been standing at the bar for a long time.
