In all our travels up and down we have never drove the Great Basin Hwy 93 from Jackpot to Las Vegas. Todays drive was amazing ,very scenic mountains and rock formations we have never seen before. Looking forward to the rest of the drive up 93. Fueled up in Alamo after climbing out of vegas, used up almost half a tank. There are no fuel stops where we are going today,Rachel.So after more climbing and having to come back to 93 tomorrow we will need to go back to Alamo and top off before we head north towards Ely. Still not exactly where we will stay tomorrow...we have a few ideas though.Maybe a state Park near Panaca or the Ely KOA.
Paying an overnight visit to the Lil Alien Store/giftshop/campground located on the extraterrestial highway and near area 51!
The top-secret Area 51 government base is near SR 375, and many travelers have reported UFO observations and other strange alien activity along this road. Such stories prompted the state to officially designate the route as the Extraterrestrial Highway in 1996.
Hoping we will not be abducted or probed tonight!!!
