About the only things I like about Nevada…







I found myself surprised while in Las Vegas a few months back, by the impression of energy and ambition. I liked it far better than Reno. That was a small shock considering how much I have always loathed Lost Wages. Still, it feels like Vegas is a place where people go with a purpose and with aspirations. Reno seems more like a place people fall to or settle in.

That observation aside, my sights remain pointing northwards and out of here.

Canyon Fire

Last week, about 5 or 6 miles (8-10km) north of here, burning bright on the California-Nevada frontier. .
