Tonopah to Ely

Traffic along the Tonopah - Ely road is not exactly heavy. Along the 168 mile stretch of road there is precisely nothing.

In the 1980s they built and tested the Stealth Bomber here, as the only inhabitants to watch it were snakes. There really is nothing but scrubland, mountain and desert for mile after mile. It is utterly silent and when we stopped at lunchtime, we could still see the point at which we started 19 miles earlier!

  1. I would highly recommend a visit to Nevada Northern Railway Museum 1100 Avenue A, Ely. A warm welcome guaranteed.
