We stayed at the Peppermill Hotel in Reno. It was very busy with Valentine's Day visitors. A lovely room, a beautiful casino atmosphere, sumptious dining, and all at a considerable expense.
We left on Saturday morning and drove east on Interstate 84 to Winnemucca, Nevada. They we drove north on U.S. 95 to Burns Junction, and then northwest on Oregon Route 78 to Burns, Oregon. We stayed Saturday night in Burns. It is 391 miles from Reno to Burns.
Clear skies, dry, and dramatic high desert views in all directions.
