Along Highway 50, the official Loneliest Road in America, you’ll find the ruins of a Pony Express station that’s worth the hike to check out. It’s roughly a mile walk from the parking area, so bring water and wear shoes you’re comfortable walking in.
Is it worth the stop? We think so. It was the highlight of the otherwise very boring Highway 50 journey we took last May.
There were also some crazy black lizards hanging out on the rocks! I have no idea what they were, but they were everywhere.
