"Boundary Peak 13140 ft" United States of America Off The Beaten Path Tip by DPando

I crossed several times Nevada (3 or 4) by different places. Stiffling hot was the main word to define that one.. after leaving Pleasant Grove (UT) at first time in the morning with all the mountains white by the snow i drove towards Holden by I15S and i took the fork to the right to Delta (UT) driving by route50 to Ely (NV).
The road to Ely was amazing ..flat and wide valleys like an ocean surrounded at times by mountains (Schell Creek Range) and by canyons at Snake range with huge erosioned peaks at both sides in a bending amazing and lonely road

From Ely i took the road 6 southwestwards driving by the desert... several miles in a straight and dizzy by the hot sun road through Warm Springs (awful place) and after Toponah, a mid-range town at the top of a hill in the middle of the desert where i just can detach the airport several miles before you reach the town..

And finally just in the border among California and Nevada you reach the mountain .. the highest of Nevada and the summit of White mountains.. amazing place !! amazing road !!

I was so happy to be for my first time in Califronia !!! at last i was there!!
