: There are some ghost towns along the old transcontinental railroad. There really isn't alot left of any of them, but it's a nice day trip to follow the old grade out to Nevada.

: Make this trip only in a 4 X 4, and then make sure that it hasn't rain in a while. The mud out there can be scarry. Be careful driving across some of those old railraod bridges, some are sturdy and some aren't.

: which was completely covered with mud by the end
: of the day. I did not see any ghost towns or
: encounter any impassable roadway. At times there
: were potholes and I did not see any other
: vehicles along the way. This is a single lane
: roadway and does not appear to be maintained by
: anyone. If one broke down it would be a long walk
: to a phone.

: My experience in these areas is that cell phones
: are too far from the cell towers and wouldn't
: work either. My vehicle is equiped with onstar
: which uses cell phone technology and I have found
: numerous areas of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico,
: Nevada and Utah where it won't connect.
