HIGHLIGHTS IN THIS ISSUE
Happy New Year! This issue we're jumping right onto those dirt roads; you’ll find our ghost town story on page 28, and on page 42 you’ll read about great places to fuel up (you, not your car) in Austin. We’re debuting a new arts and culture section this issue, also. It’s right after our events and shows stories, and we hope it helps you find a bit of our state’s creativity. Check it out starting on page 56.
We’ve got three very special features this issue. The first is a look at the mechanics of mining, which as an industry shaped this state more than any other. From gold pans to massive stamp mills and everything in between, learn about the technology that made the Silver State, well, the Silver State on page 70. On page 80, the first part of a new series debuts. We’re calling it True Grit, and it’s about Nevada’s most tenacious and resilient towns that don’t usually get a share of the spotlight. Humbly and with great love, we showcase our beloved Lamoille Canyon starting on page 64. This is one of our most favorite areas of Nevada, and if you haven’t been to visit yet, I’m sorry to hear that. The canyon was forever changed recently, but we have faith she’ll be back one day. Until then, we remember the glory that was, and will be again, Lamoille Canyon.
