4. Northeastern NEVADA


   Founded 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.
