It’s still “legal” to hang someone for shooting your dog on your property.
People who visit Nevada can save a piece of it in their pocket by collecting commemorative coins. Each coin tells us about the state’s history and geography. Stamped into the metal is the year Nevada was admitted into the Union. In 1861, Nevada made history by becoming the 36th state. Another very important feature of the coin is Nevada’s landscape, the Great Basin, which represents many of the state’s National Parks. The Great Basin has deserts, mountains, rivers, and is home to many animal communities. The nickname the Silver State, is engraved into the coin as well and was given because of its rich minerals found in the state. Remember no trip is complete without a souvenir, so collect your commemorative quarters today!
Take a visit to the Great Basin to see a thrilling view. The Great Basin is a part of Oregon, California, Wyoming, Idaho, and the Eastern Nevada range. It has dry weather plants and can have dry, dusty, sandy soil. You could stop by Lehman's Caves to see amazing rock formations. Your trip should include stopping at the rocky mountain slopes and looking out over the Bristlecone pines. While you’re there you might see bobcats, coyotes, jackrabbits, and ground squirrels. The view is something to behold, an experience you’ll never forget.
