I rolled out of Fernley and headed SE on Hwy 50 to Hwy 361. Nv. has some nice 2 lane state and county roads.


Saw these enormous sand dunes. These were huge. They had a recreational area out there for the quads to play at



I was headed toward a road I had spotted called the Gabbs pole road. Turned out to be about 50-60 miles of straight gravel. What was so cool about this road was I saw not another car on the whole road. This was my longest solitary stretch on the trip. Just me and cattle.



And at the other end I found this.
Im pretty sure this is one of those solar plants where the array of mirrors focus sunlight on the top of the tower to generate steam. This thing was huge. Look at the cranes scattered around it, they look tiny.



And more of Nevada









And I spent the night in Caliente Nv.




Tomorrow I was meeting up with old friends I hadn't seen in 13 years. Riding through Zion Park. WooHoo.
