If you are in this area, you have to check out this road. Its very straight, but the sites are beautiful as you run through a valley with mountains all around. At the end is the Great Dune's national park. For more pictures and information on this road, go to the US 50 Trip report Here

This was a pretty nice ride that I did in July 07. It was insanely hot though. If you're going in the summer, go early in the morning and bring a water bottle, sunscreen and a hat. The park has lots of trails, some of which go across the dunes, so there's no shade up there. I wish I could have spent more time there.
There was a small gas station just outside of the park, but avoid it if you can, their prices were pretty high.
