NevadaGram #205 - Hold that Tiger (and those Bears)

Lily in her pool at Safe Haven Refuge Nevada
I don't quite know how to introduce the strange place in the desert we visited early in July. It is only ten miles off Interstate 80 at Mill City but far removed from what you expect to find in the Buena Vista Valley. It's called Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary. You're welcome to visit, but call ahead first — 775-538-7093 — to make sure the gate is open. From Mill City drive south on Nevada 400; about 10 miles along you'll pass a small tan cinderblock structure on the right and then take the first road to the right, maybe a quarter mile farther on. This graded gravel road leads straight to the base of the mountains, but the marked turnoff to Safe Haven is about a half-mile along. Pass through the gate as pre-arranged and continue to the small compound that is headquarters for the fenced and double-gated retirement community for wild animals unfit for the wild.Read more

Kids go back to school in mid-August, and locals prepare for the White Pine County Fair, held August 17 - 19. Horse racing is also held the same weekend at the fairgrounds, ensuring a fun time (and also a good idea to make hotel reservations ahead of time). New Baker Website The business spotlight this month is on the new and revised website for the Great Basin Business and Tourism Council. It's not a good basin, it's a Great Basin! the website proclaims. We put the “Awe” in Awesome. Check it out to learn more about things to do, places to stay, amenities, and more.

Northern Nevada Arts & Artists

Hot Club of San Francsco plays Artown in Reno

August is heat in Northern Nevada, and that brings out the festival season as well as quite a few art-oriented events. Let's take a look at a few of these events. Street Theater in Carson City On the evenings of August 11th and 12th, Madame Curry will take us on a walk around Carson City's historic west side to encounter the lingering ghosts of those whose homes these were. Madame Curry is a spirited and historically fictional character named for the widow of Carson City’s founder, Abe Curry. This is the 26th season of the Carson City Ghost Walk, a delightfully spooky and enjoyable way to experience Carson City’s Victorian Era and diverse history. Hear about lingering spirits of the long ago centuries, haunted and paranormal stories and gossip from the past. This is a spirit lead, guided walking tour of the downtown district’s west side historic homes and businesses.

Bicycling Nevada in August

Tahoe Flume Trail, photo by Brenda Ernst

by Curtis Fong, "the Guy from Tahoe" August with its hot daytime temps and thunder showers is the Dog Days of Summer when it comes to bicycling events in Nevada. Still, August is still a great time to get out and ride, no matter where you are in Nevada. Road Biking in Northern Nevada and around the Lake Tahoe region gets a little concerning with the thousands of daily summer tourists visiting and enjoying the diversity of activities offered. There are several options to continue to ride and train for September events in and around our region as the roadways around Lake Tahoe are jammed with traffic, trucks pulling boats and trailers, and visitors distracted by the beauty of the Lake and not paying attention to the roadway and bicyclists.
