US route 50 in Nevada, the loneliest road in America
this is the story of the route 50 in Nevada in the united state of America, a route which has been dubbed the most deserted road in the United States This 600mm photo was taken with a Sigma 150-600mm lens where you can see the road along 16 kilometers.
It is a transcontinental highway that runs from west Sacramento, California, in the west to Ocean City, Maryland, on the east coast and then crosses central Nevada. In July 1986, Life magazine named it “America’s lonely road”.
The name was meant to be pejorative, but Nevada officials seized it as a marketing slogan.
The road crosses large desolate areas with almost non-existent signs of civilization, as well as through several large desert valleys separated by steep mountain ranges. The road stretches for 657.9 km
