We’re back in S.F. after a 700 mile drive in one day from southern Utah visiting DJ of Asymptotic Life and his wife.
Highway 50 goes through the middle of Nevada. You pass through huge semi-arid valleys seemingly about the size of Rhode Island that have no perceptible human habitation in them. There are few gas stations and they are 60-80 miles apart. Sue loves drives like this. Me, I can’t help but think, what happen if the car breaks down… Cafes there have bumper stickers, “I survived Highway 50. The Loneliest Road in America.”
However, the spectacular scenery does make it all worth it. Mountain passes, rolling meadows, deserts with 10,000 foot mountains surrounding them – and more.
