    Getting Into the Blank Spot On the Map Along The Rubies Route | Part 2

    Getting Into the Blank Spot On the Map Along The Rubies Route | Part 2

    The wildness and remoteness of northeastern Nevada truly sets apart. We say that a lot about Nevada, and it’s true. But here—it’s more true. Follow Fil Corbitt and Sydney Martinez on one of the few Travel Nevada road trips where dirt roads are not optional. From Elko to Lamoille, and the Ruby Marshes to Jarbidge Wilderness and beyond, the Rubies Route is perfect for the outdoor adventurer who knows what to do with a blank spot on the map.

    Part two takes us to the most far flung corner of Nevada. We start by listening to the wind at a surprise wetland in the high desert, then head north to the O’Neil Basin to visit. From there, we’re off to Jarbidge—considered to be one of the most remote towns in the lower 48, engulfed by spectacular wilderness. We catch up with Nevada Game Warden Quinn Hesterlee, Cottonwood Ranch visionary Agee Smith, and proprietor of the Outdoor Inn and Red Dog Saloon Jase Stegall. #TheRubiesRoute

    Landscapes Sure To Inspire On Nevada's Burner Byway | Part 2

    Landscapes Sure To Inspire On Nevada's Burner Byway | Part 2

    Though the Playa has been made famous by the biggest party in the world, Nevada’s Burner Byway Road Trip is about everything BUT Burning Man. ‘Cause let’s face it—the road from Reno to the Black Rock Desert and beyond is loaded with some of the largest wilderness areas in the lower 48, surreal landscapes, natural hot springs, some of the darkest designated skies in America, ancient rock carvings, and larger-than-life open air installations inspired by this very place itself. It’s no coincidence that thousands of people make the annual pilgrimage “home” to the Black Rock each year to hit the reset button and grab onto a caliber of freedom found nowhere else. Freedom is in this desert. Always here, open, and waiting along the #BurnerByway.

    Episode II picks up where we left off at Pyramid Lake, further up the Burner Byway road trip in Gerlach. We begin by chatting with Friends of Black Rock, who lends fascinating insight on the open air installation at Guru Road, as well as the founders of Planet X Pottery—both of whom were inspired by the beauty of the Black Rock to create their work. From there, we sling back some of Bruno’s famous ravioli and a picon punch or two, explore Fly Geyser, and get a glimpse of how vastly spectacular all 799k acres of Black Rock Desert truly is.

Learn more about Burning Man and the world-class art that stemmed from it at the Reno Playa Art Park, and the only accredited art museum in Nevada, that lives in the same bracket as New York’s MET. From here, we dive further into the route at the breathtaking Pyramid Lake—an ancient glacial lake known for its endless Paiute history and entrancing scenery.

    Embracing Wisdom & Tradition Along Nevada's Cowboy Corridor | Episode 1

    There’s a wisdom in tradition and history that’s worth learning from—equal parts brain and heart—and there sure is a whole lot of it found along Nevada’s Cowboy Corridor Road Trip. In this three part series, hear from Nevadans who, over multi-generations, have formed a deep bond with the northern Nevada landscape, making this part of the Great Basin unlike any other. From Basque sheepherding, to Ranch Brewed Beer, Ghost Towns, Mining, Rodeos, and Cowboying, the history and heritage found along the Cowboy Corridor runs deep, and is yours for the exploring. #CowboyCorridor

    In the first episode of this three-part series, we embark along the Cowboy Corridor starting at its eastern most point in West Wendover, along Nevada’s portion of Interstate 80. Here, we chat with this sparkling city perched on the western edge of the Bonneville Salt Flats, who’ve embraced live music as part of their story for more than 70 years. From there we move west to meet with one of Nevada’s oldest microbreweries, and tried and true places to refuel that have been a fixture of the Elko skyline for decades.

    Episode 2 of the Cowboy Corridor picks up  in Elko at J.M. Capriola Co., one of the American West’s most legendary custom saddle and leather goods shops. The legacy of the man who started it is very much alive here, and next door, at the Cowboy Arts & Gear Museum. From here, we head west to Winnemucca to connect with the founder of the Buckaroo Hall of Fame to learn about the place that commemorates the men who ran cattle in Nevada’s Great Basin for centuries. Striking up a conversation over Picon’s at The Martin Hotel leads us to the Winnemucca Basque Club’s dance rehearsal, and a historical nightcap of Basque families who have sheep herded, been part of the Winnemucca basque boarding houses, and moved the Nevada story forward for decades.
