Nevada is not the place of casinos, no matter what your friends may tell you. Nevada is home to the Great Basin, a misunderstood place of spectacular South-to-North mountain ranges at the start of the Colorado Plateau. Southern Nevada is also the Northern extreme of the great Mojave desert.
Spectacular places like Valley of Fire, Red Rock Canyon, and Sloan Canyon are unique to the South. Great Basin National Park, encompassing just a single sliver of a single Great Basin mountain range, is home to spectacular caves, mountains, and some of the oldest trees on Earth.
Forget Las Vegas and enjoy the rest of what Nevada has to offer. This Portfolio gallery has beautiful mountains, rock formations, and rock art for all to enjoy.
