Getting Away from it All
Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Nevada 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 08-27-2011, 12:22 PM

Took this photo of a trailer in the Pahrump Valley, the Spring Mountains in the background.There are no facilities available in this part of the desert, temps today are to reach 108 f, rainfall is less than 5 inches per year. The people are pretty well isolated, but have one heck of a view.

Now THAT'S getting away from it all. Love the shot! Would be a nice place to spend the winter, but not somewhere I'd want to be for another couple of months.

Thanks Jim, the conversion to b/w gave the photo a 60's Instamatic camera film look. Bob

Nice photo, I like the conversion, as much as I like getting away from it all that spot would only do for a couple of days or so. There seems to be hydro available though or would the voltage be too high?

Good observation Heinrich, that is a Valley Electric transmission line, there isn't a distribution line in that area. A lot of people will run generators for those hot days of summer and batteries for interior lighting as you know being a veteran camper. Thanks for looking Bob

Without utilities, I don't see how people do it during the summer months. Like you said, winters are great. thanks for looking. Bob

It is a little bit different territory than you have in Tennessee, thanks for looking. Bob

Dave, the Old Spanish Trail runs through this area, can you imagine what the settlers from the East must of thought crossing this area. Thanks for the kind comments. Bob
