Whoops! I posted the wrong town, I have Austin on the brain.
Hi SC, to be honest I don't know what the altitudes are but are probably roughly the same as Ey is only 77 miles from here. I worked for the Nevada Northern Railway Museum in Ely last summer, and have friends around town. I go there from time to time. Eureka is pine trees and mountains, and many - many old ghost towns and mining sites from the 1800's. It's a wonderful place so if you ever go to Ely hop on over. Let me know you're coming and I'll plan to meet you somewhere.Space Cowboy wrote:PITD, I've never made it to Eureka, but I've fallen in love with the Ely area. Is Eureka more desert? I note that the two towns are just about the same altitude.
Well, each to his or her own. I happen to love the snow and how peaceful - clean and pretty everything is when it's snowing out. After awhile though it does get old, that I will agree with. Since I wrote my original post it's warmed-up and the snow has melted. I think we have started-in to spring, however, we could have a little more snow.Apache Devil wrote:Snow is evil cold stuff. The less I see of it the better. It makes nice postcards, but that is about it.
