spent a lot of time on route 80. 640 something miles worth. here are a few thoughts:
-went by 4 prisons in nevada
-lots of construction zones on 80 in nevada. slowed up the road trip a little
-route 80 through nevada not that pretty. lots of scrub brush and not much else
-upon entering utah became very isolated. not too much between nevada and slc
-not a friendly reception to utah- almost every exit between border and slc said "no services." good thing i got gas in nevada.
-slc looks nice at night. good freeway system, too.
