Across the Nevada Desert: Tonopah to Hawthorne on US 95

Here’s a look at the drive on US Highway 95, northbound from Tonopah to Hawthorne, Nevada. What I love about this drive is when you leave Tonopah, there’s a billboard for the McDonald’s in Hawthorne, proclaiming it’s “Just Ahead!”. But “Just Ahead” actually means 100 miles — totally worth it, though, for a McFlurry. and provide driving videos and stories to help you plan your trip.

I made this trip in June 2018. Video shot with a Brinno TLC-200 Pro time-lapse camera mounted on my roof with a homemade magnetic case. I travel with two Brinno cameras – one facing forward, the other in reverse. Sometimes the reverse camera captures better video (fewer raindrops and bugs hit the rear-view lens).
