        TUE. August 29, Northern Nevada RR, Route 50    



    Well, we can take the straight route home through Salt Lake or the scenic route somehow through Nevada. We chose the scenic route across US 50, touted as America's Lonelest Highway. It starts with a final run through the colorful cliffs of central Utah. Then we make our way to Ely, Nevada for a tour of the Northern Nevada RR museum.

    One route would take us north to the Interstate but we continue on heading west on US 50. The route passes through a series of mountain passes and deserts. The towns are 100 miles apart. Eureka and Austin are most forgotten. It's dark by the time we reach Fallon and then Reno, where we stop for a burger at Sonic, where we are served on roller skates.
