Due to mountains, there are few ways to cross Nevada.  The Pony Express through - most of Nevada ran very close to the route later selected for the Lincoln Highway. - This sign was at the ruins of what was once a Pony Express station. The police had us pull over to wait for this to go by.
Today we experienced beautiful clear weather with temperatures in the 70s. Austin, Nevada. The towns on U.S. 50 are 90 miles apart, so it was good to see a town. We had lunch at the International Cafe.  Their fresh fruit pies were excellent! We will see a lot of businesses named ''Lincoln'' in the next few days. - We promise not to take pictures of all of them.
Looking down on Austin as we leave town heading east. In the spring there are still shades of green among the vegetation we'll see - in the next few days.  Later in the year it would all just be brown. U.S. 50 winds over a mountain pass and then goes straight across the next valley.
