An interesting story...
Lincoln County Wars
Lincoln is set up a valley, amongst the peaks - rising to 12,000 feet. A pretty place, although it has to be said the town only holds so much interest! The 1870s ? Hmm. I have pairs of underpants older than that.
However, we did find the best coffee shop so far - and a very friendly and fascinating proprietor; Annie 'Sure Shot':
Annie 'Get your Gun' Sureshot
Most importantly, Annie told us that we needed to make our way to the Valley of Fire; a campground amidst an old lava flow! Sounded interesting... we left Lincoln, and were soon back on the open road.... ...arriving finally at the Valley of Fire!
