We spent some time traveling on the Extraterrestrial Highway on our way up to Reno from Arizona. We were on our way up to Reno when the police blocked off the road and would not let anyone through. To this day we still have no clue what happened but we were told to turn around. Our only option was to turn around and head back to Vegas and get a hotel room. The next morning, the highway was still not open so we headed out on the Extraterrestrial Highway and headed up to Reno.
This was a trip and a half! There was an Extraterrestrial Festival going on. Although the roads were not busy by any means, there were hardly any cars, but when we did it was either a cop car or some car with either alien stickers or an alien something or another attached to the car.
The night before, some people tried to sneak into Area 51 because they wanted the truth to be told to the people, so this heightened security and we saw more cops and media posted on the ET Highway than anywhere else out west. We came to a pull off area and decided to take some pictures. Turns out that this was where the media could meet and get up dates from the police on Area 51 and the festival. We were able to get a few pictures and then we got out of there. I believe that thought we were media since I had my cameras, but we didn’t want to hangout, we just looked around, snapped some shots and left for Reno.
