South Lake Tahoe Correspondence – March 2016

South Lake Tahoe Winter at the South Shore of Lake Tahoe has taken a hiatus. Apart from one nice snow dump on February 17, it was a dry month and March may be more of the same unless El Nino shows up and gives us what locals call a “Miracle March.”  The lack of snowstorms aside, the amount of activities at Tahoe haven’t been hampered at all. Some of those activities to be had can be located right off Kingsbury ...

Tuscarora Correspondence – March 2016

Tuscarora A Conspiracy of Rabbits It’s quiet in Tuscarora these days and, most likely, will stay that way until spring. A main topic of conversation -- if you can find someone to talk to -- is the plague of rabbits besieging Tuscarora and Independence Valley. Here in town, the jackrabbits and cottontails have girdled everyone’s trees and lilac bushes, even climbed a few apple trees to strip the bark. In the valley, rabbits by the hundreds have burrowed into every ...

Railfanning Correspondence- February 2016

Railfanning See Nevada from the California Zephyr For a lot of people, railfanning means finding a location overlooking some railroad tracks, setting up a lawn chair and an umbrella, and listening to a radio or scanner to hear the trains coming. Then, when a train passes by, taking pictures, shooting video, or just enjoying the view. That is a great way to enjoy trains, particularly if there is an unexpected surprise in the train consist such as a locomotive from ...

Las Vegas Beer Park by Budweiser Beer Park by Budweiser at Paris Hotel is another reason why there is only one Las Vegas. This “park” becomes the city’s first rooftop bar and grill on a 10,000-square-foot deck overlooking the Strip, with an outdoor grill, picnic tables, 100 beers, and dozens of high-definition televisions. “Beer Park is inspired by some of the great American pastimes that bring people together, like going to a baseball game or a picnic,” said Matthew Silverman, ...

Baker Correspondence – February 2016

Baker Interesting Things to Do and Places to See in February February may very well be the quietest month of the year to visit Baker.

Tours of Lehman Caves at Great Basin National Park are offered every day at 1 pm, with additional tours at 9 am on Saturdays and Sundays. You can borrow snow shoes from the Lehman ...

Lincoln County Correspondence – February 2016

Lincoln County New Ash Springs Proposal The popular Ash Springs Hot Springs picnic area, about seven miles north of Alamo on U.S. 93, was closed by the BLM in 2014 because they determined the swimming area had become too unsafe after one of the walls to the swimming pool had been broken down. Not by natural means, but by “unauthorized maintenance.” A big lock and chain on the gate and fence keeps people out. This year, however, a local group ...

Silver City Correspondence – January 2016

Silver City Visit Silver City's 1860 Post Office The Comstock community of Silver City, Nevada is sometimes mislabeled a "ghost town," but it is far from it. Located just a three miles from Virginia City, the town is part of the region's National Historic Landmark.  Although the residents enjoy their privacy most of the year, they are also warm hosts to a number of free, public events and programs that are refreshingly distinct from cliched tourist destinations. A Little History: ...

Carson Valley Bighorn Sheep Outing at Walker Lake As enamored as we are with the Carson Valley, we looove us a good field trip! And I'll just have to admit that I am crazy about sheep! Bighorns, that is. So, when Erik told me there is a place where one is virtually guaranteed to see them in the wild, I jumped at the opportunity. Our first sheep "hunting" trip to Walker Lake, on the way home from the Burning Girl festival on the ...
