It was sad to leave Mandy and Earl and Salt Lake City, but onward we went. Today was a day full of steam engines and the Loneliest Road in America. I traveled this way before on Scoot 66 and loved it so much, I just had to share it.
On some roads, it doesn’t much matter which way you travel them, but on US Route 50 across Utah and Nevada, it does. In 2008, I took the road east. This year, I took it west. Now I feel like I’ve truly traveled the road and that I only saw half of it until we took this trip.
It would be hard to pick a favorite day from this mini vacation, but this day provided a lot. We traveled 710 miles, which seems like WAY too many to do in a day, but on roads like this, it’s all about the driving. Sure, I would have loved to have more time to see things and do things, but we didn’t have the time and still came away with an amazing run.
Anyway, please follow along with us…
