After a delightful several days visiting three national parks in Utah, along with a couple state parks, it was time to return home. Highway 50 travels a nearly straight line across the state of Nevada, before connecting up to other roads, not so less traveled. There's a reason Highway 50 is labeled the loneliest highway in America. In Nevada it is an isolated, barely traveled two lane path, transporting one across the Great Basin National Monument and other desert scenes.
There are a couple places of interest along the way. One is the Hickison Petroglyph Recreation Area, which we had planned to visit. However, the washed out road from recent storms made it too hazardous for us to enter this trip. But, the Shoe Tree next to the highway in Middlegate, Nevada, made for a whimsical visit. Once we marveled at all the shoes accumulated in the branches, we made certain that Dr. Eggman, stuffed koala, and my grandson Baron's constant companion, sat watch in the middle of Highway 50 looking east, while this picture was snapped with lens pointed west at my grandson hamming it up in the road. Yes, in Nevada, Highway 50 is actually that lonely!
