A September is one of the most beautiful months to visit Baker and the surrounding area.

September Camping There is plenty of nice weather for camping in September. I recommend Angel Lake Campground for a quick weekend getaway. It is only an hour and a half from Elko and is reached by taking I-80 to Wells and then following State Route 231 to Angel Lake. Route 231 is a state scenic byway and provides great views of the East Humboldt Mountains as you head towards the campground. The campground sits in an aspen stand adjacent to ...

The Mob Museum It will soon be 2018, yet most people still think it’s 1970 in Las Vegas. That’s when the Strip was run by the Mob. Remember the movie Casino ? Well, Bugsy is out and Wall Street is in. Yet that old image of Bugsy still lingers, and Las Vegas promotes it in all its glory at the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement (The Mob Museum) in downtown Las Vegas on Stewart Ave. The Mob ...

The Great Outdoors As summer is winding down and the high desert soil welcomes cool breezes, Mineral County remains a treasure trove of places to enjoy camping, while enjoying the sweeping views of Walker Lake and the vast circle of mountains surrounding it. Coming out of Hawthorne when traveling north on Highway 95, a first stop would be Walker Lake’s Monument Beach. Once known as the State Beach, it has now been dedicated by the County as a free, family ...

It’s All About the RIVER, Babie! The river matured late this year, with cold water and bank to bank flows persisting into late August. The upside is that the river should still be tube-able (and swimable) in September. We plan to over-indulge in this refreshing activity, putting in at Mayberry Park upstream and taking out at the Truckee River Whitewater Park downtown. For free maps and info, go to the Riverwalk District’s website or pick up one of their free ...

It felt as if every person on the planet visited Lake Tahoe this summer.  People from all walks of life came to the South Shore in search of the great vacation and great times.  Much like waves crashing on the shores, the crowds kept coming and coming.  Temperatures in the lowlands were hitting triple digits, so to many the logical escape was Tahoe.  Local businesses welcomed them with open arms: after all, tourism is the life blood of the economy ...

Bullock’s Field, the old Boulder City Airport Prior to 1933, Boulder City's "airport" was a graded dirt strip that accommodated the occasional private plane. In 1933, Noel Bullock leased the land from the Bureau of Reclamation to create Bullock's Airport. Noel, a Nebraska farm boy, already had found fame driving his homemade RAJO Model T Ford Special, Old Liz, that the press called a tin can and that Noel renamed Tin Lizzie.

1987 Ely Centennial Celebration – Thirty Years Later Mining is an up and down activity, with the price of minerals controlling the rise and fall of the economy in a mining town. The 1980’s were very typical of the mining boom and bust cycle and had a lasting impact on the future of White Pine County. The McGill Smelter smokestack perhaps best symbolized the times. Approval for the new 750 foot stack was sought in 1983. The giant stack was ...
