Charity Run Press Release NV 05-23-2015

OK - here's a quicky. Same place as one before but no snow. This is the west side of Montgomery Pass, NV. Old US 6 looking southwest towards the Sierra Nevada's. The new alignment is to the right which was constructed in '62. Not far past where the two highways disappear is the CA border. This area is one of my favorite old road obsessions. When I was kid (about 7) the highways pavement & white / double yellow lines were very visible, but the road was very abandoned. It even sported the signs "Road Not Maintained, Drive At Your Own Risk - Nevada Highway Department" (some are still there). I begged, bargained, anything to get my parents to drive on it or at least stop so I could walk on it - never happened. Every time we went to my grandparents I would look forward to staring at all the old alignments, especially this one. By the time I traveled this myself it was more of a jeep trail than an old highway, although when your on it you can still see the pavement in some sections. I have driven coming from the opposite direction.
