(Ron Writing) We’ve been feeling a little disconnected with the outside world the past few days. We had no cell signal in Great Basin NP so that means no telephone and no internet. This morning we packed up and drove back down to the visitor center in Baker, NV. We spent some time looking at the exhibits there since we were a little rushed when we stopped there on our way into the park.

We then continued on to Border, NV where we could get a cell signal. After spending a some time on the phone and the internet we continued our journey on US 6 heading northeast. This is another “lonely road” but is also very scenic. It was about 80 miles to the first town and we only drove through a couple towns all afternoon. We also lost an hour today when we crossed into Utah. Early this afternoon we stopped at a rest stop a little north of the intersection of US-6 and UT-148 and a little south of the very small town of Jericho, UT. Since there was a good place to park here and it’s pretty level we decided to spend the night here.

Our visit to Great Basin NP was more enjoyable than we imagined it might be. It’s been on our “bucket list” for several years but somehow we just never got there. Now we hope we will be able to return the next time we’re in this part of the country.
