Discover Your Nevada

Hey there, neighbor. Question for ya: How are you living #ThatNevadaLife?

We live in our much-loved Nevada towns for good reasons. But when’s the last time you left yours and hit the highway on a little only-in-Nevada adventure? One where memories include gazing up at some of the brightest stars in the darkest skies. Exploring ghost towns teeming with Silver State stories (and maybe an apparition of two… if you’re lucky). Clinking Basque Picon Punch over tasty grub and tall tales. Seeking solitude and solace miles from the crowds. And beyond. 

Ready to get on the road and truly Discover Your Nevada? Your mind’s in the exact right state.

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.

The Great Western Steam Up

This July, The Great Western Steam Up encourages you to Discover Your Nevada through the eyes of Nevada’s pioneering railmen along the V&T Railroad. Hosted by the Carson Railroad Museum, this once-in-a-lifetime event celebrates the 150th anniversary of the completion of the V&T Railroad, linking Virginia City and Carson City with the rest of the world. Showcasing 13 steam locomotives from six historic Nevada railroads, there’s no better way to introduce the whole fam to Nevada’s sterling history and heritage.

Hop Aboard

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.

Visited the coolest bar I've ever seen in Nevada, the Pioneer Saloon over 100 years old and been in hundreds of movies and video games #PioneerSaloon #SaloonBar #Bar #Nevada #Western #Movies #Goodsprings #Fallout #NewVegas #Bikers #Route66 #HarleyDavidson #RoadTrip #USA #America #Country
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……

Planning trips in late Feb/early March are tricky. We had to adjust plans a few times due to weather and permits. Landed on a 12 mile paddle through the Black Canyon, down the Colorado River...making stops along the way to explore and soak in 4 different hot springs, then camped on the beach with an impressive fire, post an under the stars soak adventure. Not sure how I’m going to go back to a life that doesn’t include a daily nature soak 🤷🏻‍♀️ becky.schreiber wins the trip saver award for coming up with plan F that was an A+ adventure and thankful for kkurc for doing all the hard work of steering the canoe 🛶
#fbf for this postcard-worthy day at redrockcanyonlv. This was just after I sliced my ankle to pieces on the cog and FaceTimed nurse_catchit instead of going to the doctor. #oops I now have a gnarly scar to always remember this trip by. There’s never a bad day in this park, and I’ll be back in September. Hopefully with less injuries and a few climbing ropes this time. (Cough cough benjisaurus.) #redrockcanyon #vegasbaby #outdoorvegas #ventureready #nevada #adventure #cycling
