It can get a bit rough when the wind is blowing but we love it up there.
    Yup, Mono Lake is another ancient lake that is still fighting for it's survival but is a lot better now than it was 20 years ago. That being said, I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's filling up again - just not disappearing. As far as lakes go, Topaz is really nice and if you can believe it, the water that flows into it is the Walker River and the water that flows out of it is ultimately what is supposed to go into Walker Lake.

    Looks like an awesome trip! Those old bottles are super cool!

    I see you finally installed the soft top. How is the noise level with the new top? Any quieter than the jk or about the same

    Even on the JK, I found the Twill Top to be much quieter. On the JL, I personally think that it's quieter than the hard top or at least, in terms of wind. You can definitely hear outside noises a bit more - like lug thumping from tires or trucks driving beside you.

    Awesome

    This is what I love living so close to Nevada, there's so much preserved ancient history. A simple drive drive off the highway and you'll see arrowhead chippings (and the occasional arrowhead), petroglyphs, ancient landscapes, hot springs, and no people. Hope it never changes...

    Your lucky you live in Nevada or some nut from the Sierra Club would be all over you for the "bug kill". Ask me how I know.
