It's always good to explore (at least in the SIM) this largely desert but very interesting (and beautiful too!) state. My exposure to it is limited to the two "touristy" attractions:Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe. Hardly the means to appreciate this state. So, these images of the Basin and its topology are rather interesting!

I used to manage the hotel accounting team for Harrah's Lake Tahoe--lived there a year but did not adjust well to the cold climate well and became a business systems instructor for their owner at that time, Holiday Inn, where I was based near Washington DC and out of Atlanta.  A beautiful, often missed part of Nevada is Great Basin National Park, east of Ely near the Utah border.  I went there in 2013, it was the highest I had ever driven, over 11,500 feet, and the Aspen trees at that altitude were glorious.
