4. Northeastern NEVADA
as a railroad town site on the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869,
Elko has served for
generations as the
provincial capital of an enormous cattle ranching empire.
Sixty years ago Lowell Thomas called Elko“ the last real
cowtown in the American West. ”Until about 15 years ago,
that was still a good thumbnail description. Since then,
sophisticated gold mining technologies transformed it
into a prosperous young city. But, one can still enjoy a “downhome”,
relaxing, custom-designed western vacation adventure. You’ll quickly
reconnect with yourself and your family as you’ll come to love peaceful
open spaces and wild horses on the open range.
