Baker Correspondence – November 2018

Quiet Times Baker slows down tremendously in November, with many local businesses closed. The Great Basin Visitor Center is also closed, but the Lehman Caves Visitor Center in Great Basin National Park remains open year round. Cave tours are given daily at 1 p.m., with a 9 a.m. tour added on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Tours are limited to 20 people, with reservations available at Recreation.Gov. As snow falls, access to the higher elevations will be restricted. However, with a ...

Carson Valley Correspondence – November 2018

Minden-Tahoe Airport Aviation Roundup 2018 My husband and I were given two V.I.P. passes to “Aviation Roundup,” thanks to Carson Valley Visitors Authority.  While I have attended several “air shows” over the years, I have never had the opportunity to attend our Carson Valley event. The last airshow I attended was mediocre. Therefore I didn’t have high expectations for anything other than the famous Blue Angels Naval Aerobatics Team. So I thought the day would be at least worth it, ...

North Lake Tahoe Correspondence – November 2018

The fall colors are popping in North Lake Tahoe right now, as the aspens turn an incredible shade of gold and other bushes and trees native to the Sierra turn a fiery shade of red. And although we’ve had a record number of bluebird sunny days in Tahoe, freezing temps are creeping in at night allowing some resorts to start making snow. For instance, Mt. Rose announced its earliest opening ever, covering a ski run with the white stuff for ...

Pahrump Correspondence – November 2018

Geology Saved Spring Mountains From Mining Some of the more well known mines in Pahrump, like the Johnnie, the Labbie and the Congress, are pretty much close together. In fact, most of the largest mines in the  Pahrump Valey were all built at the northern end, even though legends like Breyfogle’s lost mine pointed to the nearby Spring Mountain Range. So why did the mining stop at the northern end of the Pahrump Valley? And why were the Spring Mountains ...

South Lake Tahoe Correspondence – November 2018

It has been a glorious autumn here at South Lake Tahoe.  Everywhere you look are pockets of turning Aspen and Willow trees just popping with bright yellow leaves, which are contrasted perfectly with the green Jeffrey Pines and Evergreens.  The lake is, as usual, a striking cobalt blue, and with boating season over, it’s not as busy, just Tahoe in its natural state. It’s the quiet time, before the snow flies and the town fills back up with eager winter ...

Pahrump Correspondence – October 2018

Pahrump -- from gold mining days to the modern era Gold was the biggest mover of people out West. People came by the millions looking to start a new life. Pahrump, Nevada was one of those towns. But when the gold ran out what was left? Gold brought prospectors to the Johnnie Mining District  at the turn of the century, and when that died down in the 1930s, that left ranching and agriculture -- which kept the people coming into ...
