Boulder City Correspondence – July 2017

Snow White Sang at the Boulder Theatre Somewhat neglected in the story of Boulder City is the fact that Boulder Dam was built not just to generate electrical power but to inspire a nation. The architect Gordon Kaufman added the Art Deco touches to project a modern, forward-looking vision of America that was badly needed in the Great Depression. Boulder Dam was later renamed Hoover Dam, but nothing else was renamed -- causing endless confusion to visitors about where Boulder ...

Summer greetings from Elko. There is plenty to see and do in Elko this July. Here are a few of my favorites. Wild about Flowers This year's heavy snows and spring rains are guaranteed to produce a bumper crop of wildflowers this summer. Lamoille Canyon Scenic Byway is one of the best spots to see the wildflowers. You can see plenty of flowers along the 12-mile drive to Road's End. For a closer view, any of the six hiking trails ...

July 4th in Ely July 4th is one of the biggest celebrations of the year in Ely. There is a long history and tradition for this.

Underground miners came from Wales and England, and Basque sheepherders from France and nearby areas, Others came to work in their trades, including Chinese workers in the restaurants and laundries ...

Pioche, seat of Lincoln County In stark contrast to its very colorful 19th-century past, 21st-century Pioche, Nevada attracts visitors and new residents with its friendly, picturesque, quiet  hometown appeal. The town, on U.S. Highway 93, is the county seat of Lincoln County. A main attraction is the courthouse, built in 1938, a prominent fixture of the town. An even more famous attraction is the "Million Dollar Courthouse," the one used from 1873 to 1938. (And that's another fascinating story all ...

A Year-Round Blast In the summer month of July, families gather with outdoor water sports, picnics and fireworks on their mind. Kids anticipate July 4th with an evening of booms, then bursts of color in the night sky that slowly spray down embers, like sparkling waterfalls.  But in Mineral County, the Paiute Indian tribal members concentrate on selling dazzling fireworks in an all-year supply. Just north of Hawthorne and Walker Lake along highway 95,  the town of Schurz stands as ...

Reno: The Best Place to Live (and Play) When Erik and I were striving to create a home for ourselves, first separately and then together, we faced a couple of challenges. First, we are both desert rats. We love big skies, open spaces, ghost towns and lonesome places. We fantasize about living “out in the middle of nowhere.” However, Erik grew up in Chicago and is a self-described “urban rodent.” And then there is the little matter of earning a ...

The Fourth of July lands on a Tuesday this year, and that means a four-day weekend. (Yay! )  Or why not just take the whole week off? Americans nowadays don’t take enough vacation time, anyway. But this little town up here in the mountains will be filled to the gills this month with merry travelers looking for a good time.  Not many places in the world offer as much as Lake Tahoe does in terms of variety of recreational activities.  ...

Ely's Great Bathtub Race at Cave Lake Ely has a history of creating off the wall events, and one of the wackiest has to be the Great Bath Tub Race held each June at Cave Lake State Park. After one of the local motels remodeled their rooms a few years ago, a late night brainstorming session led to the wild idea of floating and racing bath tubs on the lake. A few planning sessions followed and the concept for a ...

On one particular day in the month of May, my father and I went for the shakedown cruise on his Sea Ray motorboat.  The first voyage of the year was a trip up to Zephyr Cove from Lakeside Marina at Stateline Beach, where the boat is moored.  It was just about an hour-long trip, but enthralling even to this lifelong Tahoe resident.  Big white puffy clouds spotted the sky, and the windless day made the lake flat and glassy -- ...
