Along a deserted stretch of U.S. 50 between Fallon and Austin, Nevada.
When I went on-line to check on the condition of things out along the 'Loneliest Highway' - this pay-phone was my principle concern. I would have never thought of anything happening to The Shoe Tree - which is gone.
My concern was for this 'Loneliest Pay Phone' is well founded. Sure enough, you can get mobile phone service pretty much the entire length of this roadway through Nevada. Hence, not much need for this pay-phone anymore - and yet here it is, alive and ready. The pay-phone number is 1+(775) 423-0904 - in case you want to see if anyone is hanging out there.
Just beyond the pay-phone is the 600 foot (183 meter) high 'Sand Mountain' - in case you need a pile of sand higher than the Washington Monument to keep things going well in your world.
