We picked up US 50 in Fernley but continued on another 30...


Today's post covers our 3 hour trip from the Susanville, California area to Fallon, Nevada. We traveled CA 36 for a bit through pretty scenery to US 395 for the rest of today's drive. It was a lovely day & traffic was light which is always a good thing. We probably would have driven a bit further today but there weren't any good options for camping once we left Fallon, traveling US Route 50, dubbed the Loneliest Road in America.

After checking with http://rvparkreviews.com we decided that the Bonanza Inn & Casino sounded like an affordable place to overnight. $15 a night with full hook-ups, nice. Nothing more than a parking lot really but it was clean & quiet & served our needs. We decided to get haircuts & pick up a few things before dinner & it took longer than we'd anticipated so we decided to eat a burger in the Bonanza restaurant. It was great! Service was fast & efficient & the restaurant is decorated nicely & very clean. We had a good nights rest & instead of making a quick breakfast at home before heading out decided to enjoy a larger than normal breakfast so we wouldn't have to stop once we got on the road. Another good decision! Very good breakfast, large portions & affordably priced. We both had leftovers for another day. Enough said, but if you get up in the Reno area & know you are going to travel US 50 you might keep the Bonanza in Fallon in mind :)

We'll see you on down the road as we travel the Loneliest Road in America, destination Ely, in the next post. Hope you enjoy today's pics. It was an interesting, pretty drive for us :)
