Mineral County Correspondence – October 2017

History Meets Cemetery Exploration Some would say that cemeteries give them the creeps, while others would view them as a plethora of historic wonders. Walking slowly through any older cemetery, one may respectfully find oneself observing names, dates and messages that were inscribed to enshrine a person’s unique honor. Author Sue Silver, once a resident of Mineral County, experienced her own surprise during an extensive research when she uncovered a long-lost relative buried in the Aurora, Nevada cemetery, where 19th-century ...

North Lake Tahoe Correspondence – October 2017

It seems like over on the northeastern side of Lake Tahoe autumn came in fast. As we enter into the shoulder season, the temperatures have dropped 20 degrees and we’re experiencing some chilly mornings and some stormy afternoons … sometimes with snow! However, this is one of the best seasons to enjoy Tahoe because even though the temperatures are getting cold, the lake (generally) still stays warm. You’ll most likely have it all to yourself if you decide to go ...

There really were gunfighters in Pahrump Pahrump doesn’t have the fame of Tombstone, Arizona, where gunfighters blazed it out on its streets in a hail of bullets. And yet the town has a performing group of resident gunfighters complete with a Wild West Extravaganza weekend  in the spring. Known as The Pahrump  Gunfighters, the group performs at the Extravaganza, and they do shows throughout the year. The founder of the organization, Dan Delgado, is dedicated to the history of the ...

Starting at the Thomas Creek Trailhead on Timberline Drive will take you up through a dense canopy of yellow, orange and red aspens and cottonwoods, all the way up into the Mount Rose Wilderness.  This hike never disappoints, and it is quite popular amongst the locals. There are several other routes ...

South Lake Tahoe Correspondence – October 2017

A What to expect when planning a trip to Lake Tahoe in the fall?  It’s a tough question, because there’s so much going on with music, festivals and weather.  The weather in September had it all: it rained, hailed, snowed, and the capper was a tornado warning on the Lake and a water spout that developed on the water near Zephyr Cove.  The warm and sunny days of August waved bye-bye, and suddenly it was autumn in the Sierra Nevada.   ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...
