Desert bound

August 29th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized

A week ago Travis Jensen and I returned from a 1,600 mile, six day no-agenda-in-mind photo road trip through Nevada’s desert. It was one of the best road trips I’ve ever been on.

Hitting the road August 13 with a Dodge Charger rented at SFO, we cruised east on Highway 80 with our first day’s driving ending in Lovelock, Nevada. There, and along the way, we took a lot of photos and met some really great people at Pershing’s Pub. Then next day was on to Winnemuca for the second night, with more photos snapped at some really interesting spots. The next morning it was back on 80 driving through Battle Mountain, Elko, and Wells, and then heading south down Highway 93. We stayed in Ely, where the following day we picked up Highway 50 (“America’s Loneliest Road”) for the return west. More small towns and a diversion on Highways 722 and 95, an Indian reservation, a stay in Fallon, and then up to Reno for two days. It was an amazing trip!

We’re still going through our photos, but so far we’re really digging what we snagged…
