Saturday, June 22, 2013 -  - Ely had an old steam engine to pull a tourist train.  We did not ride the train. - There's this matter of a highway we wanted to follow. Heading north out of Ely on U.S. 93. The Lincoln Highway will follow this highway - until it gets to the town of Schellbourne, where it will turn east into the desert on a gravel road. Now we are at an interpretive park at the ''wide spot in the road'' known as Schellbourne. - (Don't try to read the small print. It's larger on the next pages.)
Look what Bill spotted!  It is not along the Lincoln Highway. - The Lincoln Highway is that gravel road heading off to the mountains behind it. There goes the Lincoln Highway, headed east.  It will go through a nuclear testing range. - We won't go that way. We're getting enough radiation from the sun out here. - Instead, we will head north to Wendover and follow I-80 to Salt Lake City. What is wrong with this picture? -  - The artist very much worked a sensation of wind into his work, but Bill's beard - reveals the truth. The wind is actually blowing in the other direction. - In the next few days watch Bill's beard to see how extremely windy the plains can be. Now come some views on the road heading north to Wendover.
