Great Basin NP

We drove Route 50 to get to Great Basin.  The Nevada portion crosses the center of state and was named The Loneliest Road in America by Life magazine in July 1986.  While we drove on it, we never passed another car, nor did we have any behind us.  Our trip started with an excursion to a Triolbite Quarry, where we dug through stones to find the 30 million year old trilobites!  We continued on to the park and spent some time exploring Lehman Caves.  We saw some wild horses when we drove away from the park and ended in Cathedral Rock State Park (which looked like another planet with the crazy formations).
