Drive the Loneliest Road with Richard Moreno

In this first episode of the new podcast from the editors of AAA's Via magazine, hosts Michelle Donati and Mitti Hicks kick off their exploration of the West on an auditory road trip along Nevada's Highway 50, dubbed the "Loneliest Road in America" in a 1986 Life magazine article. With expert guest Richard Moreno, celebrated author and former publisher of Nevada magazine, they discover there is so much to see and do on this stretch of desert highway, from stopping in Middlegate for a burger the size of your head to hiking along rock walls covered in Indigenous petroglyphs and even surfing on sand dunes.

Follow along as they journey from Ely, Nevada, to Great Basin National Park before continuing on to Eureka, Spencer Hot Springs, Toquima Caves, and Sand Mountain.
