Where I stayed
The rest day was over so it was back on our bikes on the road to Fallon. By heading to Fallon we had started our journey on the loneliest road in America the US50. The US50 is not only a lonely road but it is also a long, straight, boring and repetitive road that never seems to end; how people live by it baffles us!
So we reached Fallon for the night and set up camp, no major incidents.
The next morning we left the happening town of the moment Fallon. So it was down the long, straight, boring and of course lonely road which was surrounded by desert called the US50. Unlike yesterday the Nevada sun decided to make an appearance and turn the Sierra Nevadas into a pizza oven. Good thing the car air con works well.
Attractions which we passed include historic buildings, mountains, the San Andreas fault line which was nothing special (an empty field with cattle grazing on it) although Ben Leigh was like a kid in a candy shop.
Tonight we are the only campers at the Cold Springs ranch right next to the road; good thing it's a lonely road then!
Tomorrow we head further away from civilization and into Austin.
