Long Weekend Getaway, Day 4: Routine Run Across Nevada

With good weather (or at least no bad weather) forecast ahead of us, we felt no need to rush today, and took our time over breakfast at the hotel (chatting with the manager about the newly-opened property and given her feedback based on our own travels and experience) and moving out for the remaining 250 miles to home. We were slightly worried over a few flakes of snow we saw falling from our fourth-floor room, but by the time we finished packing, the snow was gone and none of it was on the roads. It was time to go home.

This trip shows us that, using Elko as the midway point between Fernley and the Salt Lake City area, we can easily make a four-day trip like this for attractions in the SLC area, even if I should try to stretch my time off by taking half-days on the weekdays as I did on the Loscon-SMOFCon trip. We may do that in the future, as there is at least one more train-related attraction there that we want to visit someday.
