Discover Your Nevada

So. You call yourself a Nevadan. Well then, neighbor, we’re curious… How are you living #ThatNevadaLife?

To be sure, our metros are some of the most vibrant, happening places on Earth. That’s why people flock to them from all over the world. But when’s the last time you left yours behind and hit the highway on a little only-in-Nevada adventure? To gaze up at some of the brightest stars in the darkest skies? To explore a ghost town teeming with Silver State stories? To clink Basque Picons with a local over killer grub and taller tales? To seek solitude and solace in some #nofilter-worthy wilderness, miles from any crowds? (And, of course, to flaunt your home-state pride by snagging some made-in-Nevada goodies along the way!)

Ready to get on the road and off the grid, and truly Discover Your Nevada? 

Here’s the thing: The more Nevada you know, the more Nevadan you are. And now is a perfect time to get out here, explore your own state, and really live #ThatNevadaLife.

It’s all right here. In your very own state. And the memories that await you are infinite. So then, dear Battle Born adventurer. Maybe it’s time to discover YOUR Nevada. 

We Nevadans are no strangers to a good time. And we all have our favorite local spots to escape to. However, while you’ve probably beach-dayed it up at Tahoe or partied on the water at Lake Mead, how many times have you soaked in one of Nevada’s hundreds of natural hot springs, pristine alpine lakes, or wild rivers and mountain streams? Maybe it’s time to dip those toes in

You may have tackled some trails around Red Rock, Valley of Fire, and the Sierra Nevada, but have you navigated Cathedral Gorge’s slot canyons, wandered among Great Basin National Park’s 5,000-year-old bristlecone pines, or beheld the view from atop the Ruby Mountains? Maybe it’s time to dust off those boots

Perhaps you’ve gorged yourself on all-you-can-eat sushi and sipped some world-class cocktails at your favorite local lounge, but have you ever attempted to slay the Middlegate Monster burger, plowed through each course of a traditional Basque family-style feast, or learned to take a Picon “punch” (Nevada’s officially unofficial state drink) to the gut? Maybe it’s time to schedule a cheat day.

And sure, you’ve burned rubber to San Francisco or LA, but have you road tripped the fabled Loneliest Road in America, the park-studded Great Basin Highway, or the wondrously weird Free-Range Art Highway? Maybe it’s time to pack the adventure-mobile

We took a “rest day” exploring the colorful, petroglyph-covered rock formations of Valley of Fire. Starting to get seriously obsessed with the red and green hues out here!

It's time to apply for tickets to tour this gorgeous freak. Fly Geyser, not far from the putty-colored playa known as Black Rock Desert, is a technicolor blend of iron (red), sulfate (yellow), and algae (yup, the green crud) on private property in northern Nevada. It was born in 1964 when the drill from a geothermal company accidentally exposed it. After 55 years, it's getting a little taller and a touch lovelier by the year. Details and ticket info at blackrockdesert.org/fly-geyser

Throwback to an 'out of this world' roadtrip 👽
Cathedral Gorge State Park
03.01.2019
I’m not going to lie, this climb kinda scared the crap out of me. So much about climbing is trusting your guide and your gear, but it had been a few years since I’ve been on a wall and I was also pretty hungry, so it was safe to say my mind wasn’t in the best place. Either way, it is pretty cool to be able to shoot photos from the middle of a multi-pitch route. Maybe I’d do it again…for the gram of course.
