Great trip down Route 93 to Ely. Passed the "Loneliest Road in America", Route 50, but this has got to be a competitor. Except for spectacular geography, not much along this route, unless you have an ATV that can take you up the dirt roads into the foothills where there seems to be a lot of mines, most of them abandoned.

Dawn told us about shopping at two stores called Marshalls and TJ Maxx. She said they are full of stuff at way below retail cost for lots of name brands. She had us at below retail cost.
