  • We took Highway 50 from i70 all the way to Carson City (westbound). The main characteristic about this highway is the absence of buildings, towns or really anything man made. You still encounter cars ...  more »
  • We spent a few days driving Highway 50 and camping out in remote locations. There is so much to see here. There are several nice towns, hot springs, campgrounds, Native American sites and other things...  more »
  • We've run The Loneliest Highway (Highway 50) from Great Basin National Park to Reno. It's a long way through deserted areas, but not the most desolate in the United States. We've run on many other lines that were more deserted and with much less traffic. You pass a number of small towns on the road, where it is a good idea to provianterer and tanks petrol. Also makes a stop at Middlegate between Austin and Falcon. The site originated from the old Pony Express routes, but is today a pleasant stop on the road. Here is a nice and relaxed atmosphere with bar and restaurant and a small shop and toilet.
