DESERTS & MOUNTAINS TRIP
Interstate 15 Nevada

Interstate 15 runs along the west side of the Rocky Mountains. The interstate spans from San Diego, California, to the Canada border near Sweetgrass, Montana. On Day Three of the Deserts & Mountains Trip, I drove Interstate 15 from Interstate 40 in Barstow to CA 18 West in Victorville. On Day Four, I drove Interstate 15 from CA 58 in Barstow to Cedar City, Utah, and on Day Five, I drove the interstate from Cedar City to Interstate 70.
