The drive along here is a lot of fun. We stopped for lunch and photos at the Black Mail Box. Unfortunately no UFOs.

I've always wanted to go around Area 51, not for the alien thing, I'm just fascinated on how top secret it is so my excitement went through the roof when I saw the Extraterrestrial Highway sign in Hiko. It is over run with stickers by...More

The sign is about 1 hour and 40 minutes. Go all the way out to Rachel, NV too. It’s not a bad drive!
