Tumble weed is rolling everywhere. The smell of sage was unbelievable. We have a 8 hour drive to Las Vegas today.
Don’t Blink, Don’t even Blink. These two towns are tiny but you will be so relieved to see them. Get ready, ‘cause here comes our first spectacular road-trip point of interest: the Alamo Truck Stop.
Alamo Truck Stop is perfect for picking up a bag of chips and a toilet break. I highly recommend it. Plus, any place that exactly matches the color of my car, is a definite WIN in my book!
As you leave I-15 for Route 93, you are suddenly thrown into the desolation of the Nevada landscape. There are only two towns along the way, Ash Springs and Alamo. If you are heading out this way it’s a good idea to get gas at Alamo, no gas is to be found in Rachel. As you depart the gas station at Alamo it’s a short drive to the Route 375 junction. Once on 375 the first photo op is on the right at the Extraterrestrial Highway sign, if it is still there. Souvenir hunters like snatching the sign from time to time.
is also one of the places that the commuter bus from Area 51 stops at.
