We left Great Basin National Park and drove back to Ely to catch highway 93 north to Idaho. There is an old timey train ride from Ely to Ruth which we thought about taking, but naturally it does not run on Tuesdays. We stopped at a rest area at Schellbourne which was a Pony Express stop in 1860 and 1861. We read some very interesting history of the Pony Express there. Then we drove on to Wells, Nevada alongside the beautiful Ruby Mountains. We checked into a commercial RV park so we could take showers, wash clothes, recharge the Casita’s battery, and check our email and update the blog. We had no phone or internet access the last three days.
