NevadaGram #213 - Nevada Ghost Town Comes to Life

Ghost Town by Justin Panson
by Justin Panson The Ghost Town has the most beautiful name, drawn from botanical nomenclature, at once Victorian and old western. But I omit it here, based on keeping secret places secret. With a place this unspoiled you have to be careful with the information. The old timer who told Whitey about the town looked long and hard at him before deciding he was worthy to entrust. So we’re carrying that trust forward.I think that’s why you never got a really clear map to get out there. There was some dead reckoning involved, as if you had to really want to get out there and had the get-up to figure it out. In the age of moment-by-moment self-broadcast and the perfect memory of Google, there are no secrets anymore. I’m a bit concerned about even sharing this account.Read more

Lehman Caves is generally the wettest in spring months, as the snow melts on the mountain above, infiltrates the tiny cracks in the marble, and drips into the cave passages. When the drips come fast, they don't have time to make speleothems like soda straws and stalactites, they fill pools and rimstone dams with water.Read more

Ely's Bristlecone Birkebeiner is Nevada’s First, Best
(and Only) Crosscountry Ski Race

Finish Line, Bristlecone Birkebeiner, Ely Nevada

by Erick Studenicka First contested in 1983, the Ely Outdoor Enthusiasts club bills its annual Bristlecone Birkebeiner Cross Country Ski Race in rural White Pine County as the longest running Nordic event contested in Nevada. But the race is more than the Silver State’s oldest cross country ski race — it’s the only one. Located more than 300 miles from the renowned snow of Nevada’s east shore of Lake Tahoe, the Bureau of Land Management’s Ward Mountain Recreation Area in the shade of 10,941-foot Ward Mountain makes for an unlikely site of the state’s lone Nordic race.
