Driving on the Burner Byway towards Soldier Meadows

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?

While you’re out here livin’ #ThatNevadaLife, tag your pics to share the adventure with your fellow Nevadans. If we love your Silver State story, look for your snaps here.

Lake Mead just north of the Hoover Dam.
The oldest living organisms on Earth lying patiently in the shadow of Wheeler Peak and the glacier. These freakin trees are older than Jesus guys. Also the trail through this forest was full of so many loose rocks I swear I nearly twisted my ankles a dozen times. Be safe out in the middle of nowhere guys. I also love this first photo because you can see the Great Basin desert stretch off into the distance at roughly ~6,000ft less elevation in a dozen miles.

Still about a month away from being able to see the galactic core but now is a good time to start shooting because temps are still cool and now I am seeing more of the gas clouds. Stars will be tact sharp because of almost zero atmospheric distortion from heat. About 9pm last night, 51 deg, and a rain shower just passed through the area so it smelled nice. The mercury vapor street light added a nice green glow to the buildings. It was nice to hangout at an abandoned ghost town, by myself, in the dark……

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 been a while since i’ve felt excited about shooting again. This time I’m trying to teach myself how to shoot better climbing photos and it feels all shiny and new to pick up my camera. ✨✨✨
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 
Do you have any fun photo projects on the horizon or new things you’re trying with photography?

Also if you shoot climbing photos, would love any tips! 🙏🏻 Crashpad #gifted by metoliusclimbing
Spring is here!!! Gotta go out and smell all the things and chase all the bugs. •

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.

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

Be warned: your Nevada bucket list is about to get longer. Because if you can dream it, you can find it right here in our own home state. To help you with that, here are some tried-and-true bits of Silver State inspo to get you going.
