Trip to the Mainland - Part 1

Rachel and I have managed to escape to the mainland and visit with my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew.  I am very thrilled about this trip.  It's been about 3 years since I've seen my sister!  So, here we are in Fallon, NV.  We've been hanging out, riding horses and 4-wheelers, hiking, rock hunting, roasting marshmallows in a big fire, doing farm chores, and we all even had a road trip thru Vegas - to the Grand Canyon - and Meteor Crater.  We managed to do all these things and still get Rachel's treatments done. 

We had tons of fun!....and took tons of pictures!.....which some are out of order...
