Winnemucca ~ Our RV Boondocking Vacation~Part 2

Our second part of our RV Boondocking Vacation was spent in the Winnemucca, Nevada area.  Even though we have spent quite a bit of time there, we had never visited the Humboldt Museum.

It is larger than it seems and has a great collection consisting of items like American Indian artifacts, early vehicles, mammoth bones, and MUCH more!

Check out our pictures below:
