June 5

We left South Lake Tahoe and drove east on Hwy 50 (known as the Loneliest Road in America). We stopped at a tree. It was very strange. There it was in the middle of nowhere and it had hundreds of shoes hanging on it. Some had fallen off to the ground below and it looked like foliage under the tree. Jim printed off a list of cheap places to stay along the way and one of them is where we are tonight. Totally FREE! It is a Forest Service campground about 6 miles east of Austin, Nevada on Hwy 50. It is very well maintained. The elevations here is 7,500 feet. It has no hookups, but it has water spigots and flush toilets (not pit toilets.) It has a very beautiful setting and we are by ourselves. A lady came through and said she stayed last night and the camp was full.


  1. Beautiful country. Trippy tree. Spoke with Lorna today. She sounds good.

  2. I'm in Washington visiting Karen. We are both enjoying your trip - narrative and pictures.
