Las Vegas to Reno, Nevada 7.31.2012


– Tripping Nevada-California 2012 –

On this expedition we travel from Las Vegas to Reno, Nevada for

the Gregory Euclide: Nature Out There exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno.

While his work is best viewed in person, Euclide’s work may be seen on his website

and the band Bon Iver used a Euclide for their 2011 release, Bon Iver.

First, we drive Route 95 north up into Nevada

and once again enjoy the road through the wide open Mojave Desert.
