Lincoln Hwy Entering Nevada

Recommended Posts

When you enter Nevada on the Lincoln Hwy there are no signs to let you know it. Not far after entering Nevada you enter the Goshute

Indian Reservation. As you leave the reservation, you enter Antelope Valley. We saw ten Antelope there: This picture was taken else

where:

Dale,

 

If memory serves, there is a small reservoir across the road from about where the store is where soldiers on the Eisenhower led trip (1919) took a dip. I think some or all camped there.

Wow Dave,

 

That is an interesting fact. There still was a little bit of water and cat tails in the reservior now.

 

Too bad I couldn't hang around and get some pictures of the Yellow-headed Blackbirds there.

Hey Jim, most of the Lincoln Hwy could be done in a car. The hidden 8 miles and the Pony Express would could use 4x4.
