The drive to Lone Pine, California is a long one from Utah, but I love exploring new roads especially when they cross the wide open spaces of the western U.S. We wanted to take a scenic (or at least a new) route on our way to our combined Mt. Whitney climb/Yosemite family vacation, so we decided to begin our trip by taking Highway 6 through the west Utah desert, including a stop-off at Great Basin National Park. The trip certainly didn’t disappoint in the “wide open spaces” department. It was a lot of driving though small rustic towns and vast desert landscapes with plenty of elbow room.
