Time has helped shape the consciousness of the modern Nevadan, once you get through the facade of the vast wilderness, high desert ecosystems, long gone towns, futuristic potential, rough summers and even rougher winters; you see Jurassic seabed’s, 2000 year old civilizations and towns filled with forgotten ghosts. How could a modern Nevada have been molded from the Comstock Lode, brothels, horrifying wars and the birth casinos?
Nevada has always been part of the fantasy of the old west. It’s where luminaries like, Mark Twain in Virginia City and “Bugsy” Siegel in Las Vegas made themselves famous because of the surroundings.
Nevada has been built by grit and determination. Built by generations, people you have seen, people you can see in your daily lives and ghosts of the past.
