Hawthorne to Mono over Anchorite Pass on NV 359, CA 167

Here’s what the middle of Nevada looks like. Anchorite pass between Hawthorne and US 395 is quite a bit lower in elevation and nowhere near the slog you get going over Conway Summit on US 395. See the photo gallery of Hawthorne and Anchorite Pass

Hawthorne, Jerry’s home town, is just south of Walker Lake. There is a Truck parking lot with a free dump station just behind the El Capitan casino and motor lodge off 5th street. You can fuel up at Scotties or the Exxon station near there, too.

NV 359 and CA 167 are good two lane roads but don’t count on shoulders. There are a lot of straight stretches where you can let any traffic by as you enjoy the scenery. The odds are pretty good, though, that there won’t be much, if any, traffic to get by.
