NevadaGram #195 - Incline Village, Crystal Bay and Coaldale

Incline Village Nevada
In all my years of exploring Nevada the most difficult place for me to get a handle on has been Incline Village. I could never find the There there. Now with the help of Kayla Anderson (see below) I've learned there isn't one. In most small Nevada towns, if you could get up on the roof of the tallest building, maybe 3 or 4 stories, which you'd find at the center of town, you'd see everything there is to see. Down all the streets, over the all the fences, into all the back yards. Not Incline Village though. It's not just that the trees get in the way, although they do. It's that it was never a town in the usual sense, although it's trying to become one. Every other other burg in Nevada formed itself round some natural activity center — a railroad depot, a mine, a ford of the river, a crossroads.Read more

Nevada Correspondence

Nevada Correspondence - October 2017

In this edition: Baker, Boulder City, Elko, Ely, Las Vegas, Laughlin, Lincoln County, Mineral County, North Lake Tahoe, Pahrump, Reno, South Lake Tahoe, Sparks   Baker With cooler temperatures and snow at the highest elevations, it’s clear that winter is on its way. Autumn, though, will persist throughout the month, and it’s one of the best times to visit Baker, as Great Basin National Park isn’t as busy. Most of the local businesses are still operating, although hours will likely be reduced throughout the month (except for the Border Inn, which is open 24/7). With Halloween at the end of the month, I thought it would be fun to feature a couple local ghost towns. The population in the Baker area is currently about 200. As you can see by the accounts of these ghost towns, they had much bigger populations, but they didn’t stay long.Read more


Horse Guts

Squaw Tom Sanders

by Squaw Tom Sanders This story I want to tell you about happened in 1917. I worked at Mono Lake there. It was team days back then, and we was buildin' highways. We had rippers pulled with horses to loosen up the dirt. We had about eight, ten teams on this ripper, made out of heavy iron like a plow. And then we worked with Fresnos getting the dirt out of there, and then we had horse blades. Everything was pick and shovel. Our Nevada Bookstore Enjoy these authentic stories from Nevada's past, told by the man who lived them. Tom was the real deal, and his unique tales illuminate a Nevada now nearly forgotten. They built a camp with a corral where a little stream of water come into Mono Lake there. Mono Lake had 23 minerals in there, heavy minerals. We lived in Army tents, with a out-house. .Read more
