One of my favorite places to visit in America is rural Nevada. Of those millions and millions of acres, those in the state’s Silver Trails region have always been my most favorite. I first explored the area several decades ago and have returned a dozen times since.
As you will see in this video, Nevada is not just Las Vegas and then a huge barren desert. That is such a misconception. What I have always loved about rural Nevada and especially the Silver Trails area (which includes a small slice of California around Death Valley) is the beauty, the wide open spaces, and the wonderful, well-preserved ghost towns to explore away from the crowds.
Nevada Silver Trails is running a small advertising program with us, and that was how I came upon this video. If you have never explored this area, I urge you to do so. There are plenty of places to camp including vast expanses of public lands (the federal government owns 84.9 percent of the state’s land). After watching this video you may not need much convincing to visit. Learn more at the area’s website.
