Baker Correspondence – July 2018

Escaping the heat is a priority in the hot month of July. A great place to escape both the heat and crowds is Hendry’s Creek in the North Snake Range. This creek is home to Bonneville cutthroat trout, which have survived since the times when Lake Bonneville filled Snake Valley. Following the creek, an 11-mile long trail leads up to The Table, a high elevation plateau that is a marvel. Here you can see twisted bristlecone pines, bighorn sheep and ...

To the Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship: Downtown Carson City’s Adams 308 “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship,” is the line that runs through my head when I think about the marriage between the Hop & Mae Adams Foundation and the new and improved downtown Carson City.   Hop and Mae owned and operated the Nugget Casino in downtown Carson City. Preceded in death by her husband, and having no living heirs, Mae set about creating ...

There are Lakes in the Town of Pahrump Pahrump is not known for having an abundance of water. In fact, the one lake it did have has been dry since the Ice Age. But there are some artificial lakes in town that are not at Mountain Falls Golf Course. One of the biggest ones is Lake Spring Mountain, an artificial lake built around five years ago at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch. The Lake was the ranch’s gift to the town, ...

The secret is out: Lake Tahoe is a great place to visit in the summer.  Triple digit temperatures scorch places like Sacramento and Reno, so the lake becomes the obvious choice to get some relief.  Just looking at the cobalt blue waters of Tahoe can cool one off mentally, and then actually getting in the fresh clean water is a rejuvenation of body and mind.  In July, the area offers relaxation and entertainment for every type. From hanging on the ...

Pahrump still has a natural spring that one can walk to The small town Pahrump is here for only one reason: the first settlers found water close to the surface. Of course, that was vital to the survival of those first settlers for they had no well-drilling equipment. One such spring can still be seen on the south side of town if you are willing to take a walk. The native Paiute and Shoshone also depended on water. So how ...

Branding Time Every weekend in May is a branding event, when the calves are separated from their moms to get their vaccinations, ear tags and castration. Some ranches will brand their calves, while others mark them with a distinct ear cut. It takes a lot of people to do a branding, and while some are paid, many volunteer. After the calves and moms are separated, cowboys and cowgirls will go rope a calf (it’s not so easy!). Once a hind ...

Diamond Jack wasn’t surprised when he received an invitation to visit El Burro Borracho at the Rio All-Suite Hotel. The restaurant, adjacent to the lively VooDoo Beach pool, comes from Emmy Award-winning television host Guy Fieri, who I met and spent time with when he opened Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at The LINQ Hotel. The literal translation of El Burro Borracho is "Drunken Donkey," and one can achieve that moniker by enjoying Fieri’s signature jalapeno-infused Caliente Margarita. However, ...
