Day 49 – The Loneliest Road In America

Today we Traveled from Fernley, NV to Eureka, NV via Rt 50 also know as the  “the loneliest road in America”,      We traveled over 200 miles on this unique road.   Stopping once at a small restaurant in the middle of the desert.

Today’s posts are mainly from Eureka, NV.    A former mining town that bills itself as “The Friendliest Town on the Loneliest Road”  [source:  Eureka, Nevada | Eureka NV Hotels | Things to Do in Eureka (]

Tomorrow, we head to Salt Lake City, UT.   This will be the first time in several weeks that we will no longer be on pacific standard time.     Good sign we are headed towards the east after nearly 50 days on the road.


Day 27 – Capitol Reef National Park

Even considering Utah’s many impressive national parks and monuments, it is difficult to rival Capitol Reef National Park’s sense of expansiveness, of broad, sweeping vistas, of a tortured, twisted, seemingly endless landscape, or of limitless sky and desert rock. While Bryce and Zion are like encapsulated little fantasy lands of colored stone and soaring cliffs, the less-visited Capitol Reef is almost like a planet unto itself. Here you get a real feel for what the earth might have been like before life appeared, when nothing existed but earth and sky.   [Source:]
