Nevada 373 north
Northbound California 127 becomes northbound Nevada 373 as we cross the California-Nevada State Line. Oddly, the 2002 photo shows the standard orange, yellow, and black welcome sign, while the 2008 photos the older blue on white welcome signs. This marks the southern terminus of Nevada 373 in Nye County and the northern terminus of California 127. Photos taken 11/11/08 and 01/19/02.
The first (and only) Nevada 373 north reassurance shield is posted immediately after the California-Nevada state line. from here, Nevada 373 travels north toward the community of Amargosa Valley and the junction with U.S. 95 (at Lathrop Wells). Photo taken 11/11/08.
Nevada 373 approaches U.S. 95 in Amargosa Valley; some maps show this junction as Lathrop Wells, although Amargosa Valley is the more common name for this area. Photo taken 11/11/08.
The Amargosa Rest Area is located at the southeastern corner of the intersection between Nevada 373 and U.S. 95. Turn right for U.S. 95 southeast to Las Vegas or left for U.S. 95 northwest to Beatty, Goldfield, and Tonopah. Photo taken 11/11/08.
