For those passionate for parks, wilderness, Indigenous cultures, responsible travel and great fun: Nevada (pronounced [ne- vae-da], with a short “a” as in apple.)
Nevada is a state of bold contrasts: rural landscapes and big cities, extravagant gaming and a movement toward farmers’ markets, renewable energy and a green building code of ethos.
It’s time to connect Las Vegas, one of the world’s most storied cities to rural Nevada. For those with cars and smartphone maps, it’s relatively easy to get from place A to place B. The downside is missing human interaction. We don’t stop for directions. My wish: some sort of tipsheet for visitors – local, national and international of leaving Las Vegas to experience a daytrip that’s a pleasure.
It’s time to celebrate Indigenous cultures, the cornerstone of human habitation in the Mojave Desert. Which are Indigenous-owned businesses open to visitors? Who are the Indigenous artisans? How do visitors connect?
