About Nevada


imgNevada is an arid state of the USA, lying between California and Utah. Most of the state is within the Great Basin, but parts of the northeast drain into the Snake River and the the southern portion is within the Mohave desert and the Colorado river drainage.

There is nothing more unique in Nevada than Las Vegas. The city was literally constructed out of the desert in the mid-1900s. Entrepreneur and alleged gangster, Bugsy Siegel was instrumental in the development of the early Las Vegas Strip. His hotel, The Flamingo, was built in 1946. Gambling is legal almost everywhere and even McCarren International Airport, the one near Las Vegas, features a large variety of slot machines near the flight gates.

Outside of Las Vegas and gambling, Nevada is well known for its legalized prostitution. In contrast, the state is one of the last remaining that doles out punishments for drug crimes based on the practice of mandatory sentences. Politically the state has been inconsistent. Nevada is considered neither Republican nor Democrat.

Area 51 is an alleged site maintained by the Federal government, specifically the Air Force. The site, allegedly created to run top-secret weapons tests, is an unproven urban legend. Some UFO fanatics believe that the government captured a UFO years ago and has kept it securely hidden at Area 51. Next door to Area 51 is the actual Department of Energys, Nevada Test Site. This is an actual weapons test area. Black Rock Desert is a 100-mile tract of some of the flattest territory in the world. Located in the northwest part of the state the area is often used for unique studies that require flat and even ground. Why so flat? The region is the bed of an ancient lake.

An unusual Nevada event is the annual Burning Man festival. This unique celebration features a large image of a wooden man that is set ablaze. The burning effigy flames for hours. The event began in the mid-80s among a group of friends. Today the event draws thousands of visitors and now takes place in the Black Rock Desert.

The Bunkhouse Ranch Seeks New Proprietor

Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada

The Bunkhouse Ranch will soon bid farewell to its beloved owners and builder. The ranch has officially opened its doors in search of the next proprietor to call it home. Nestled on the eastern side of Las Vegas’ iconic Mount Charleston and Lee canyon, the ranch spans over two acres and offers panoramic views of Nevada’s natural terrain and mountains. Built as a labor of love, owners Royce aka (Woody), and Trish Wood spent years perfecting their vision and creating their dream home. Spending over six months with a designer, they shaped every detail to bring their concept to life. In 2002 that dream became reality as the home’s build was complete. Designed with views in mind, every room in the home boasts astonishing sights. Large bay and picture windows showcase views of the La Madre Mountains, the Spring Mountain Range, the Sheep Range and the Las Vegas city lights. The dining room offers an unmatched experience as 8ft. double glass doors and bay windows set an indescribable backdrop. “We never tire of looking out the windows,” says Trish of the landscape beyond; and one can easily attest why. To the Wood’s, no ranch would be complete without accommodations for their love of horses. So naturally they were inspired to build a corral and round pen as well as two lush pastures which allow their two horses, Liberty and Justice to exercise, play and graze. Just a few miles up the road, friend and neighbor Heidi, offers convenient boarding facilities. In addition to the two maned beauties, the ranch is also home to two Entlebucher Mountain Dogs named Jake and Stella. According to the Wood’s they are unbelievably smart and fun animals, and when they are not at the horse’s feet, they enjoy jumping in the swimming pool. Upon closer inspection of this pool that Jake and Stella so eagerly endorse, it comes to light that this is not your typical dog-friendly watering hole. Instead, it’s more like an oasis hidden in the desert. An oasis complete with: a full outdoor kitchen, 1200sqft of covered patio, a built in fireplace, surround sound, and last but not least, a custom designed, salt-water, pebble tech pool and spa with waterfalls, diving rocks and water benches. Surrounding the pool, is an array of handpicked vegetation that Trish spent years cultivating herself. A master gardener in Oregon, Trish admits it took years learning what would survive and what would thrive in the Las Vegas climate. One look at the landscape of the backyard and you can see she has mastered the art. When asked why they are looking to part after so many years invested in building such a masterpiece, the Wood’s lovingly explained, being closer family- a sister, children, grandchildren and life-long friends is where they need to be. So as one chapter closes and another begins, their journey will take them back to Trish’s home state of Oregon, with Jake, Stella, and their two prized horses in tow. As for the Bunkhouse Ranch, the sun will continue to set over the West courtyard, and the large bay windows will continue to capture each sunrise. Patiently, it will wait for the arrival of its next owner to appreciate all its magnificence.
