Gorgeous area in North Lake Tahoe. There's a couple resorts in the area, namely Diamond Peak with amazing views of the lake. There's areas to pull of the side of the road and enjoy the beach and recreation areas. Residential area with a few stores. Quiet, and full of lush plants.

Genoa is an unincorporated town in Douglas County. Founded in 1850, it was the first settlement in what became the Nevada Territory. It is situated within Carson River Valley and is about 42 miles south of Reno. This is where Gayle's Dad grew up and where the extended family (including her Mom) continue to live. Gayle and I may join ...

Boulder City is just a half-hour's drive or less from the Las Vegas strip, and worth going to, if only for Lake Mead and Hoover Dam.

A ghost town just outside Death Valley National Park, managed by the Bureau of Land Management. This is a popular place, so don't go expecting to be visiting a little known secret. There are some really interesting buildings here, like the bottle house.

Reno is also known as the "The Biggest Little City in the World". It's famous for its Casinos, serves as a jumping off point to the Tahoe Ski Areas, and is a bustling metropolitan area in its own right. I've been here to gamble, to take training, to stay overnight after skiing, to shop, and to visit friends. If and ...

Stateline is in Douglas County Nevada and is right across the street at one point from South Lake Tahoe. The resident population is less than 1000, but the number of people here grows significantly during the busy winter and summer seasons, due to the high number of hotel rooms and rental accommodations available. We mostly pass through, although there can ...

Minden is right next to Gardnerville (Carson Valley Twin Cities) and is named after the town of Minden, in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Gayle's family lives in nearby Genoa, so Minden is a place to shop and drive around to look around.

Gardnerville is right next to Minden (Carson Valley Twin Cities) and is named after homesteader John M. Gardner, an early homesteader. Gayle's family lives in nearby Genoa, so Gardnerville is a place to shop and drive around to look around. A number of employee's of the California Company I work for have retired here.

In the middle of nowhere Tonopah is a place to stop - if for no other reason than it's the only place to stop. Tonopah has gone from boom to bust to boom to bust so many times even the locals have lost track. There is nothing artificial about the town. It is fascinating just to browse through the stores ...

Dayton is just down the US 50 Road from Carson City and has been in historical rivalry with Genoa (Nevada's First Settlement). In the day, it was a commercial center for precious metals mining activities. Today, it's just another relatively sleepy Nevada town on the way to somewhere else. And one of Gayle's relatives has worked at a Casino there....

Carson City is the Capital of Nevada and was named after Kit Carson. Gayle's Mom and Brother live in Greater Genoa, so Carson City to me is mostly a supply town for groceries and other shopping. Except for the few blocks around the Capital (which I've visited), I find Carson City to be a bit of an ugly sprawl, especially ...

If you are a boat enthusiast, then Overton will work as a town that you pass through on your way to Lake Mead. It offers one grocery store, a McDonalds, and a few mom and pop restaurants. There are some great atv trails along the backside of Valley of Fire (the locals call it Red Rock) that are worth checking ...

The home is burning man and all the craziness that comes with it once a year at the end of August. The rest of the year, it's a desert space inhabited by tons of dust and beautiful mountains surrounding the area!

Zephyr cove is a really nice beach, with a designated swimming area and big dock for boats. There are also a couple bars along the beach, which cater to the many volleyball players and families that hang out on the sandy strip.
