Art In Nature : Middle of Nowhere, Nevada

Art In Nature : Middle of Nowhere, Nevada


A few weeks ago Aubrey, myself, and some friends celebrated George and Abraham’s birthday by driving out to west-central Nevada to see what we could find in and around the Toiyabe Mountains. We found some hot springs, wide open spaces, pinyon pines, junipers, burros, and many empty roads. It was a lovely break from the busy life of a young professor! I look forward to returning to the area in the spring, when there may be some flowers out and about.

The blue thing is our new replacement of our red cube: an ice fishing hut! It served us well as a portable living room.
