If you are a UFO researcher one of the of the best things about taking a vacation in Reno, Nevada by car from Texas as my family and I did last year, is the opportunity to explore Highway 95 between Las Vegas and Reno. To many, this 438-mile stretch seems like a never-ending drive of nothing, but open desert and mountain ranges that keep on going forever. However, for those interested in UFOs and strange phenomena, it is a trip filled with discoveries and oddities.

A way outside of Vegas is the small town of Mercury sitting a few miles from the highway in the open desert. This town is off limits to civilians and is completely occupied by government employees and scientists involved in many aspects of nuclear bomb weaponry. A gate is located just off the highway on the road leading to the town. Of course, there are civilians working in various jobs here, some traveling from Vegas and back daily.

One of the great things about taking a road trip through this area on vacation is, getting to see the whole area in both daylight and at night, if you plan your trip just right.

The official UFO Highway is State Route 375, on the other side of the Atomic Test Site, but HWY 95 offers more insight to strange and unusual activity the US military is doing as well as some of the strange businesses found along this stretch.

Traveling north, we came across the town of Tonopah, which has become famous for UFO buffs, but primarily for the Clown Motel. Named as America’s scariest motel, because of its clown theme and proximity to the Old Tonopah Cemetery. The motel has a scary clown figure under its sign out front and a very large collection of clowns inside, most of which were sent to them from people around the world. 

On the Motel property, there were about 10 older used cars with for sale signs on them, presumably from locals hoping to sell their cars via the high exposure the Clown Motel offers. Next to the motel is what seems to be an abandoned mini shopping center or business area that has been vacant for many years. The building next to the motel appears to have been a small motel and restaurant in the past and could have been an extension of the Clown Motel at one time.

Further up the road is Hawthorne, Nevada which interested me more than anything on the trip because of the vast area covered by US military bases. Here the Hawthorne Army Depot is the only military facility listed as being in this area. However, when going through this region, you realize that most of the desert surrounding Hawthorne, out from about 50 miles on each side of town there are various military facilities, each operating in their specific specialty according to branch. Outside of town on the south side, there appears to be a base specifically for testing new aircraft and drones. Flight activity was very high at the time we were there with drones taking off and returning constantly. This base is not small, judging from the number of planes on the ground, the number of buildings, and streets, this base has to house thousands of personnel.

On the land, supposedly part of the Hawthorne Army Depot, exists literally thousands of concrete metal buildings, as far as the eye can see. On the surface, one would think these buildings are being used to store weapons and equipment, but with the vast number of them here, this could not be true. They would not store this many weapons and equipment in one area out of fear of losing most of them in a single strike, for one. Secondly, they would not store this much equipment in one area, out of the impossibility of getting all this equipment out rapidly in case of emergency because it would cause enormous setbacks and delays due to the lack of available highways and roads in this area. Thus, we are left with the ultimate plausible explanation for such a large amount of buildings as being housing for millions of people placed here who, at some point in the future will be deemed as threats or enemy combatants to the US government.

Even more interesting, is the hundreds of concrete mounds outside of the presumed Fema Concentration Camp which is clearly entrances and exits to a vast underground base or city. Mixed in and several miles away from the concrete entrances and exits are also hundreds of what appear to be ventilation pipes for this underground population. A solar power plant also exists in the ventilation area which is, or would supply power to the underground population. This solar facility has no electrical lines around it but has a few lines from it, connected to a tower near an opening to the underground population.

Many abandoned mobile home parks exist in this area as well, some left over from the days when there were many more people staying here working for the base, others that were always abandoned having been part of various US military projects.

Another very interesting and fun place, located along HWY 95 in Amargosa Valley, NV is the Area 51 Travel Center. Here there is just about everything one could want in UFO memorabilia, from ET tee shirts, plates, silverware, jewelry, drinks, and a small restaurant. Next door, is the Area 51 Cat House Brothel.

At mile marker 92 near Beatty, NV is the Shady Lady bed and breakfast, an eloquent little place one can escape to, to get away from the normal daily hustle and bustle of the city. This haven is out by itself far from any other structures or any civilization. With just a modest sign at the edge of the highway.

A unique place located near Holbrook, Arizona along Interstate 40 is Stewart’s Petrified Wood Shop. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but once you realize just how much-petrified wood from polished small bits, large slabs, to entire logs there are in this place, you realize that this little inconspicuous shop literally must have millions of dollars in petrified wood alone. This, on top of various gemstones, geodes, and artifacts they have. I mention this business only because of the extreme amount of money in the petrified wood here alone. Plus, feeding the ostriches they have on the property is fun too. The odd man who ran the store did seem agitated when we did not leave right away, even coming out to hurry us to our van, saying that it would get dark soon and he did not want to be at the shop after dark.

We did not run into anyone working at businesses along the way that ever seen a UFO or witnessed anything out of the ordinary or so they said. Although one clerk at one of these small stops said that he had seen strange things and that he wouldn’t travel to work or home at night. He seemed to be fearful to some degree but did not allude any further. When he told us this, the Highway Patrol officer who manned this long stretch of highway alone, nodded his head and added that he had seen odd things as well, though he gave us no example as to what he meant by this. However, most who live out in the desert, far away from towns are there because they like the serenity.
