Gone to See America 2006 Driving Tour. Day 16: Extraterrestrial Highway, Nevada.
Sometimes you just have to stop and take the picture. No idea where the guys with the hard hats went, but it is close to Area 51. The area is desolate. Just outside Rachel (population 54), Nevada there is an old mine site. Afterwards more desert. For those planning to attend the Area 51 stampede later this month bring plenty of water, otherwise you will end up dazed and confused — easy pickings for the aliens.
