Ah, Nevada!

Nevada joined the United States on October 31, 1864, following Mr. Henry Comstock’s discovery of silver in 1859. Since then, gold, and other valuable minerals have been found and mined in Nevada.

One feature of Nevada is its extraordinary dryness, having large areas of dessert. Parts of the state get 4 inches of water a year.

It has some big cities with exciting things to do, but much of the territory is barren. Mountains and flat valleys. A lot of each, popular with the native Wildlife.
