With a leisurely, late start from Elko, we encountered a few midday showers Monday, crossing Nevada’s Great Basin between Carlin and Tonopah, making for some interesting high-speed photos with the point and shoot.

  4. When I noticed your travel through Tonopah, I was thinking you might have been driving through our neighborhood. Last week we had quite a spell of rain for around here. Tonopah, AZ is just west of us here in Buckeye… A little thought and a quick Google search let me in on the fact that there is a Tonopah, Nevada.
