Hi Folks, we're still on our cross-country road trip from New Hampshire to Oregon. We've been having a lot of adventures and enjoy sharing them with everyone.
Finally, we're on the return trip back to NH. This post shows some of our travels on interstate highways in Oregon and Nevada. And, just as in a previous post about travel in Idaho and Montana, there's been a lot of very long stretches of highway and open road.
After visiting friends in Eugene, Oregon, we traveled to Reno, NV. Here's some (but not all) of the scenic views along I-80.
Many of the roads curved around, but the speed limit only dropped 20 mph from 80 to 60 mph.
There were a lot of clouds and mostly clear skies compared to a couple of weeks earlier through Idaho and Montana when skies were hazier with CA fires smoke.
The speed limit was 80 mph on this interstate highway (I-80) but most folks went faster.
Driving through Nevada on our way to Reno is where we hit our own jackpot in the form of a milestone mileage. Here's where Grenville pulled to the side of the road to record it.
We saw a few dirt devils. A dust devil is a strong, well-formed whirlwind and its primary vertical motion is upward. Dust devils form as a swirling updraft under sunny conditions during fair weather, and rarely come close to the intensity of a tornado.
One thing is certain, you won't have many neighbors around, just a lot of space to maybe raise some cattle, count the sage brush, or go for very long walks.
It was all nice to look at, but we decided to pass up that land sale bargain and keep moving along.
