18 Superlatives From Our Nevada Road Trip

The best, biggest, spookiest, and strangest things we ran into while in Nevada. Thanks to all the kind locals who shared stories, facts, and laughs with us along the way.

1. Most Unexpected Roadside Sights: Packs of Wild Burros

The signs warned us they would be there, but we were so surprised when we actually spotted them. Cuties!

2. Tallest Alien: Along the ET Highway

Who knew alien spotting would be so easy? Check out the rest of our ET Highway journey here.

3. Warmest Natural Phenomenon: Hot Springs

See more on our post about Warm Springs, a ghost town with a huge (and forbidden) natural hot tub.

4. Best Cocktail: The Lava Letch at Frankie’s Tiki Room

5. Most Exciting Bathroom: Happy Burro Chili & Beer

Just remember, no double clutching.

7. Most Incredible Sunset: This One, On The Road To Pahrump

It features taxidermied animals, tools from the mining days, vintage electronics and some artifacts from the nearby air force pilot training base. And it’s free to boot.

15. Most Delicious Steak Dinner: Our Meal At The Pahrump Winery

Goes without saying that the wine was pretty great, too!
