Deathride 2019-LOGO

I’ll be out Friday afternoon with a few members of the Tahoe Douglas Elk’s Lodge. Rest stops for Saturday’s Death Ride® need to be stocked with water and supplies.  Located in our own backyard, the course covers five mountain passes including both sides of Monitor Pass, both sides of Ebbetts Pass, and the final climb up the east side of Carson Pass.  The race starts and finishes at Turtle Rock Park outside Markleeville.  Riding 129 miles and climbing over 15,000 feet in one day is a daunting task.  Watch out for bikers and visitors if you have plans to visit the area on Saturday, July 13th.  Go Biker’s!

Discover Nevada State Parks

Nevada State Parks

Nevada residents and visitors are invited to “Discover Nevada State Parks” on Saturday, June 8. Park visitors will receive free day-use admission and free fishing (no license required) at all of Nevada’s State Parks.

This statewide event encourages Nevadans to discover the many exciting and affordable recreation opportunities right in their own backyards. “Nevada’s state parks offer a great diversity of outdoor opportunities,” said State Parks Administrator Robert Mergell. “For example, visitors can explore the slot canyons of Cathedral Gorge, tour a genuine ghost town at Berlin-Ichthyosaur or spend a relaxing afternoon fishing at Wild Horse.”

Discover Nevada State Parks Day is also an opportunity for visitors to take the passport challenge and add a stamp to their passport booklet, or if they don’t have one yet, to pick one up while visiting any state park. Once visitors have their passports stamped at 15 different parks, they earn a free annual day-use pass to all Nevada State Parks.

For more information on the Nevada State Parks Passport Booklet, or to find a list of state parks, please visit parks.nv.gov.
