The state of Nevada is mainly made up of arid desert landscape, but it is by no means desolate. Nevada is overflowing with exciting things to do and see. The state is full of scenic canyons to explore, mountain trails to hike and pristine waterways to cruise. Although Nevada is the driest state in the United States, it has no shortage of lakes and rivers in which to fish, kayak and canoe.
There is plenty of snow in the winter of the Sierra Nevada for snow sports like cross-country and downhill skiing, snowmobile and snow-shoe trails. The desert areas are full of geologic formations and a unique array of flora and fauna. Nevada offers thrilling adventure year-round.
