We passed more than a dozen old cars with Idaho and Montana plates.
One of the drivers said they were all in an old car club
and were headed for some event for owners of old cars.
They weren't specifically driving their old cars on the
Lincoln Highway because it is an old highway.
Later in the trip we will meet others with old cars who were.

Eureka!  (That's the name of this town.) In Eureka we began a game of seeing who could spot the most Lincoln Highway monuments. - Bill thought of this game because in Eureka he had first spotted most of them! The Eureka County Courthouse.  Note the date on it.  Much of Nevada had - its development during the mining booms in the late 1800s, and towns, - although small, are by western standards very old.
This is the town's Christmas Tree.  We kid you not.  It was labeled as such. - Well, there really aren't many pine trees around those parts, you know. We stop for the night in Ely, Nevada. An evening walk around Ely nets more monument sightings.
