US 6 in Nevada
Travel Nevada on US Highway 6US 6 is the real "Loneliest Road", crossing Nevada's empty outback from Montgomery Pass at the California line to Baker and Great Basin National Park at the Utah line. In those 297 miles of open spaces there are only three towns of more than 100 people, Baker, Ely and Tonopah. Most days you'll have the road to yourself.
