Welcome Nevada

When conjuring up a mental image of Nevada, which entered the United States of America on October 31, 1864... snow is not usually in the picture. Yet, the 36th state garnered its name from the Spanish word meaning ‘snowy’. The founding fathers must have spent a lot of time in the northern and central regions near the capital city of Carson City, and in one of today’s gambling meccas, Reno. The Silver State is also known as the entertainment and gambling capital of the United States. Nevada is the most arid state in the Union which explains why sagebrush is the state flower. The mountain bluebird, the state bird, flies over Nevada’s mountainous terrain.

It snows all over here. We're surrounded by mountains. I can go skiing on a mountain less than an hour from here.
