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:
