Turn left for Lucin (and the Sun Tunnels)... 20050625_5151

Looking southwest along Utah's SR 30. Just ahead is Grouse Creek Junction, site of a cross road that runs north to the farming/ranching community of Grouse Creek and south to Lucin and beyond.

 

Several miles ahead, at the Utah-Nevada boundary, Utah SR 30 becomes Nevada SR 233. Several miles beyond the boundary is tiny Montello, Nevada, a former railroad town and the only settlement between here and Oasis (Nevada Exit 378 on I-80). Gasoline at Montello is a bit more expensive than in other places due to the town's remoteness, but the gas pumps are a welcome sight to anyone whose gas gauge is creating nervousness. The pumps date back to the days before pumps accepted credit and debit cards.

 

After taking this picture I turned left at the junction and drove to Lucin. There had been practically no traffic on SR 30 and there was none at all on the road to Lucin.
