There are strange places in every state. We happened upon a few as we went through Nevada during our trip!
First, I wanted to show you this lovely oasis in the middle of Nevada...
Yes, that is a rest stop. Isn't it a picturesque spot to enjoy a lunch? LOL! And, by the way - those restrooms have pit toilets and no water. But, I was in desperate need of a rest area and was ever so thankful that this one was there!!
Here's a passing glance of a small town in Nevada. Most of the towns have the first letter of their name on a hill somewhere. It's Battle Mountain and though it has legal fireworks of all kinds in its favor, I still would have trouble living in a town that has "BM" on the hill! :)
One more really strange stop is the Thunder Mountain Monument. It's quite bizarre. On the website, it looks fascinating and has an interesting eccentric story to go with it. Here it is in real life:
Twice we have driven up to take a look and twice we have been so creeped out by the whole place that we have driven away rather quickly! Here are some reasons why I didn't feel welcome:
Enter at your own risk?????? No thanks!
License plates of former victims, I mean tourists???
Whew - we made it out safely - LOL!! You should check out the website though - it is interesting to see pics of the inside and the story is unusual. If you've been there or go there, you'll have to let me know!
Just a few strange spots in Nevada as we drove on through! Do you have some strange spots in your area or that you've seen on trips?
