Nevada to Colorado
September 7-8, 2004
Our route home from Burning Man led from Nevada through Utah, Colorado and the Midwest, to Kentucky and Tennessee, then up to Virginia and finally home in Maryland.
Our first day out we came across the Nevada Shoe Tree, on the north side of Highway 50 ("the loneliest road"), about 3 miles east of Rt. 361. From there to Utah (on the wrong route) we passed miles of stone graffiti. Utah brought us the Bonneville Salt Flats and a weird sculpture titled "Metaphor: The Tree of Utah."
Arches National Park was our first planned destination, with a short trip to Moab prior. From there we headed East through Colorado (and a town called No Name), driving straight through to Kentucky in 26 hours to make our reserved tour of Mammoth Cave. It was great 'cause we pretty much missed the Midwest entirely, passing through at night.
