We woke up in the beautiful site with the hot springs and got an early start. We got 100 miles in before breakfast! I think that is a record for us. We stopped in Ely, NV for Chinese buffet then continued on what I thought was Hwy 50. To my surprise about 25 miles north I noticed that we were on Hwy 93 instead. I found on Google maps a seemingly nice, windy road to turn down. After a few miles we quickly reized that White Pines County Road 29 wasn’t much of a road at all. It was dirt and gravel all the way, very reminicint of our trip up the service road in the Idaho panhandle 2 years ago. KG pushed on though! It was a long 45 mile detour but very beautiful scenery. We saw beautiful sheep, serious camping, huge birds, people looking for elk, people clipping wild elderberries and finally, Cave Lake which is where the road came out paved (10 miles east of where we had lunch). That lake was really stunning, and well deserved after a lot of hard driving. From there we drove on to the nearest gas station. The next gas or camping was something like 100 more miles so we decided to stay in the camping area of the Border Gas and Motel, just beyond the Lehman Caves. It was nice! Closest proximity of any of our campsites to beer, food, showers, laundry and slot machines if we needed them. Best part was that we were only a few feet from the Utah border!
