NEVADA FACTS

"The Basin and Range region is the product of geological forces stretching the earth's crust, creating many north-south trending mountain ranges. These ranges are separated by flat valleys or basins. These hundreds of ranges make Nevada the most mountainous state in the country." National Park Service

"The most mountainous state and the sixth-largest state in the lower 48." TravelNevada.com

"Nevada is the most mountainous U.S. State, with over 150 (named) individual mountain ranges; major ones include the Battle, Monitor, Ruby, Santa Rosa, Schell Creek, Sierra Nevada, Snake and Toiyabe. Over 30 of Nevada's mountain peaks exceed 11,000 ft., with the highest point (Boundary Peak), reaching 13,140 ft." WorldAtlas.com

Take the Kids Squatchin!

My buddy Woodrat has been taking his daughter, "Lizard" squatching since she was a baby. Now she's getting ready to graduate 1st grade, and loves getting out in the woods and mountains with her dad, more than anything.

Woodrat doesn't get far off the beaten path with her. He keeps it within her limitations. You don't need to get far off road to get near the bigfoot. Most sightings occur as they cross a road, right?

Here are some pics from one of their recent trips to the northeast Sierra Nevada Mountains:

Our good friend "Granpa Don" went along too
