Nevada’s Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park

Some happy photos. And a video of a tiny, joyful stream. I hope you are healthy and holding on. I am trying.

This is from two years ago.

Seventeen miles from Ely and two hundred miles from Las Vegas is Nevada’s Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park. (external link) Italian stone masons in the 1870s built these beehive shaped ovens to produce charcoal used in forging and mining operations. Hiking and mountain biking are both possible from the park. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing can be done in the winter. There is a tiny rivulet of water that flows nearby. I hope it runs year round.
