Day 29: Ely, NV to Fallon, NV

We expected to face strong headwind today, and today was the worst yet with gusts of more than 35 mph. About 20 miles before we reached Fallon, we saw Sand Mountain, which is another remarkable geographic feature like the Bonneville Salt Flats.
Sand Mountain is also related to a prehistoric lake, but it’s a singing sand dune, meaning it makes a music-like sound when the wind blows over it. The dune is two miles long and 600 feet high – quite an impressive sight. Andre, an alumnus, organized a get-together tonight that included several alumni and a current science student after we arrived in Fallon. We had a great time.
