The Loneliest Highway in America
Nevada (June 2002)
Many years ago, someone called Nevada's U.S.
50 "The Loneliest Highway in America," and the title definitely fits.
Of all the American highways, this one reminds me the most of Australia's
famous and even more desolate Stuart Highway, which I'd driven a few months earlier.
There are no road trains, emus, or kangaroos here, just sagebrush, wide open spaces and
an endless ribbon of empty highway.
