Scenic Sunday Drive – Jackpot Nevada to Las Vegas on US Highway 93 [Video]

Today’s Scenic Sunday Drive takes place in eastern Nevada, primarily along US Highway 93 and Nevada Highway 318, between the Idaho state line at Jackpot to Las Vegas; a drive of approximately 450 miles.

[Each Sunday I plan to release a scenic drive from somewhere around the country for your viewing pleasure. I don’t plan to narrate these, although I may include some informational banners if appropriate. The point is to just enjoy the scenery.]

US Highway 93 in Nevada is also known as the Great Basin Highway. I think there is a lot of beautiful scenery to see along the way.
