Highlights in this Issue
Along with the Great Nevada Picture Hunt, which you can find on page 34, the Silver State Scavenger Hunt winners are announced on page 22. This annual contest traversed some of the state’s railroad history, and participation was off the rails this year. We visited the Camel Safari in Bunkerville a few months ago—that story is on page 24—and in September, the Fallon Cowboy Fast Draw Competition takes place; read all about these gunslingers on page 56.
A fascinating look at how Nevada’s borders came to be is on page 62. I guarantee you’ll be surprised at how differently shaped our state could have been once you read it. Our final feature on page 72 takes a look at some of the train mishaps that have occurred in our history. These disasters were unfortunate, but the importance of the railroad to Nevada’s future kept these iron horses on the right track.
