This Basque mural depicts James “Toutoun” Ithurralde. He was a native of the Basque Country and immigrated from Lasse,,France, as a 19 year-old. He first worked for several sheep outfits before purchasing two bands of sheep for his own grazing them around the hills of Eureka. He raised his family here. The mural was created by Antone DAmele, who based it off of an old photograph. With the help of local artists Abby Sweet and Adeline Callaghan, the mural was completed summer of 2018.

Toki Ona
A trip to Elko isn't complete without a visit to Toki Ona's, right in the heart of the downtown. Order up some traditional Basque fare, or stick with some classic American dishes at this local favorite.

📍 Elko

I’m missing the lamb chops in this place. Only a short 500 mile drive (or ride) from Vegas and absolutely worth it. The Star is my go to place for dinner in Elko. Everything is served family style, if you go away hungry, it’s your own fault. Great food, drinks and people. Try a Picon Punch and don’t forget to tip your waitress.

Nevada's Basque dining scene makes it into Newsweek's
Road trip! Never pass a Basque restaurant without stopping- closed or not! #basque #nevada #explorenevada #bestfood #basquefood #outwest #sheepherder #bakarra #restaurants #bestchefs
The 100th anniversary of the Reno Rodeo has come to a close... Can't get enough of cowboy culture? We think that means it's time for a road trip to Elko, NV.
Cheers! 
Have you tried the famous Picon Punch at jtbasquenv?
