Nevada has an area almost the same size as Italy and yet is vastly underpopulated. Seen from above the state looks, and is, a vast desert punctuated by peaks and valleys dressed in a light brownish red coat. It’s a fascinating land that seems to have been oppressed by the gods of wind that chased away the seeds of mostly but a few trees.Driving in Nevada is a unique and beautiful exercise. Roads that seem to extend to infinity give way to the occasional almost empty towns. I encourage anyone who is visiting to drive outside of the metropolitan areas and experience the beauty of this unique land.
