I wrote a few weeks back about a two week RV trip my fiancee and I are planning near the end of this month. We are driving from Las Vegas thru Arizona, up into Utah, veering around the Grand Circle, and then heading across Nevada to Lake Tahoe to hit Yosemite and the eastern Sierras. We plan to spend a few relaxing days in Park City Utah before heading across Nevada.
Nevada has always fascinated me and I'd love to explore the best parts. My question is is which is the best/scenic way to cross from Salt Lake City to Reno, NV in a reasonable amount of time.
Option #1- would be to just drive Rt 80 from SLC to Reno... Maybe if I have time I would head North to Pyramid Lake and Gerlach, NV (visit Burning Man/Black Rock Desert)
Option #2- Drive Rt 80 to Wendover... take RT93 south to Ely, NV. then take Rt 50 to Reno.
Option #3- Take 15 south to Rt 6/50. Take Rt 50 west toward Ely. Follow Rt 6 Southwest thru Groom Lake, Tonopah, Ut, the head North toward Reno.
I don't want to paint myself into a corner. I know both Rt 6 & 50 are ambitious. I will be renting a 25ft class C RV and I will need adequate access to gas, water...etc. Any advice which is the best route to take. Anything I should not miss?
