What's REALLY Down Zzyzx Road? Hidden California, Explore It With Us!
If you live in southern California, and have driven the 15 to Las Vegas, or vice versa, you've been by this exit, and probably wondered, whats with the name? What's down it... A lot of history, and interesting stuff!
It's unfortunate, but most of the other videos on YouTube mischaracterize this place. It is not abandoned, it's not spooky, haunted, or scary, it's beautiful, and has a colorful history.
It was once a church, run by a well intentioned man named Curtis Howe Springer, who didn't always play by the rules. He ran a health resort and ministry on this land for decades. Way ahead of his time, he was a proponent of healthy living, health foods, healthy juices, and the like. His evangelist radio show reached millions of people all over the world. He took in the downtrodden, and charged whatever they could afford, even if it was nothing. He offered Mineral Baths in his purported Healing waters, Raised rabbits onsite, grew fresh vegetables, tea's, and sold several Miracle Cures which were generally vegetable juices. Curtis even helped save a fish from extinction. The government eventually foreclosed on his mining claims (he wasn't mining, and was more or less here illegally) and evicted him from this place after a long court battle. The property was then given to the Cal State system, and is now the Desert Studies Center. Many of the original structures are still standing, leaving a testament to a person, who's energy in this world was powerful and surreal...

Top Tourist Attractions in Nevada, Most 48 Beautiful Places to travel In Nevada
Nevada (Spanish for blanketed; see elocutions) is a state in the Western, Mountain West, and Southwestern districts of the United States of America. Nevada is the seventh most broad, the 34th most crowded, and the ninth slightest thickly populated of the 50 United States. Almost seventy five percent of Nevada's kin live in Clark County, which contains the Las Vegas–Paradise metropolitan area where three of the state's four biggest fused urban communities are located. Nevada's capital is Carson City. Nevada is authoritatively known as the Silver State as a result of the significance of silver to its history and economy. It is otherwise called the Fight Born State, since it accomplished statehood amid the Civil War (the words Fight Born likewise show up on the state hail); as the Wise brush State, for the local plant of a similar name; and as the Wise hen State. Nevada fringes Oregon toward the northwest, Idaho toward the upper east, California toward the west, Arizona toward the southeast and Utah toward the east. More infomation please look at :

The Loneliest Road in America: Pony Express, Great Basin National Park
U.S. Route 50 stretches over 3,000 miles from Ocean City, Maryland in the east to Sacramento, California in the West. Originally part of the U.S. Highway system created in 1926, it was a major transportation route until the creation of the Interstate Highway system in 1956. In 1986, Life Magazine nicknamed the Nevada portion of Route 50 “The Loneliest Road in America,” noting that it is “America minus tourist traps” with only three small towns in 400 miles of empty desert.
I wanted to experience “The Loneliest Road in America” for myself, so I drove west to east from Carson City to the small town of Baker near the Nevada-Utah border. While it is true that the route is pretty desolate, its winding mountain passes and long, open stretches of desert valleys tell the story of a time in American history dominated by Manifest Destiny, Westward Expansion and a Gold Rush. U.S. Route 50 parallels the iconic Pony Express route and you can visit the remains of a few outpost stations to this day. Just off Route 50 in the east, in between the cities of Ely and Baker, lies the beautiful Great Basin National Park – home to the mesmerizing Lehman Caves.
