i'll be driving one of these routes from reno on the way to green river, ut this week and wanted to get some feedback as to what you liked/didn't like about one or the other. it'll be a straight shot through the state...no overnight stays and a little time set aside for any interesting roadside sightseeing.
i heard i80 is faster (but more miles and not as interesting) and that hwy 50 takes longer, less miles, and more interesting.
i'm leaning towards hwy 50 at the moment, but trying to figure out which is more important to me...less miles or less time. hmm.
also, does anyone know if towns along hwy 50 are still doing that "i survived the lonliest highway in america" campaign?
thanks in advance for your input!
