Interstate 80 extends 410 miles from the edge of the great Bonneville Salt Flat at Wendover to the eastern foothills of the Sierra Nevada a few miles west of Verdi. It is a route once cursed for its miserable hardships and now often dismissed as boring. Properly experienced, I-80 is a symphony written in mountains, sagebrush and sky.

It is considered Nevada's equivalent to the Watts Towers, a major example of outsider art. Across the freeway from Imlay, between Lovelock and Winnemucca. Access is free, donations accepted.

, at the Utah line, is a gaudy flowering of luxury resorts in the dead brown hills at the edge of the cruelest desert your eyes will ever see. The horrific setting makes the opulence of the casinos even more appealing.
