Located just about halfway between Las Vegas and Reno, Tonopah is one of the larger towns that we’ll pass through on this road trip, with a population of about 3,000 people.

Tonopah is famous for having silver-rich ore that was discovered after a prospector went looking for his lost donkey.

Tonopah has Sand Dunes

How cool is that? Ok, so I’m kind of obsessed with sand dunes.
