I'm coming in, in early September. I've done the drive up 53 to 169 into Ely, it feels like a hunderd time now. [About once a month for a couple of years now]. Thing is other then a stop in Virginia now and then I never see anything.
So my question is, what am I missing? I have time to stop on the way up. Are there really neat stores, good places for lunch, or just things worth stopping to look at along my route? I am willing to drive a couple miles off the road, and will be traveling mid-week.
