Embracing Wisdom & Tradition Along Nevada’s Cowboy Corridor | Episode 3

There’s a wisdom in tradition and history that’s worth learning from—equal parts brain and heart—and there sure is a whole lot of it found along Nevada’s Cowboy Corridor Road Trip. In this three part series, hear from Nevadans who, over multi-generations, have formed a deep bond with the northern Nevada landscape, making this part of the Great Basin unlike any other. From Basque sheepherding, to Ranch Brewed Beer, Ghost Towns, Mining, Rodeos, and Cowboying, the history and heritage found along the Cowboy Corridor runs deep, and is yours for the exploring. #CowboyCorridor

In the final episode of this three-part series, Fil Corbitt meets up with a family responsible for saving a piece of Nevada’s pioneer spirit in the living ghost town of Unionville. In Unionville, we connect with Nevada’s mining history, maybe even a few Mark Twain mentions, and how the modern day caretakers are moving the Nevada story forward in this 150 year old ghost town. We learn more about Nevada’s early days in Lovelock and Seven Troughs ghost town before capping off this #NVRoadTrip like a true northern Nevada would at one of the most storied rodeos in the West.
