Nevada, the ‘Silver State’ as a result of the silver rush days of the mid 1800s, is a state of many contrasts. Visit prehistoric petroglyphs on Donner Pass – not far from Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America. A landscape so different to the striking sandstone formations of the high desert. As desolate as much of the state appears, it is after all home to ‘the loneliest road in America’, people have been living here for millennia. Colonised by the Spanish in the late 18th century, Nevada was acquired by the United States in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo following the Mexican–American War. In 1864 Nevada became the 36th state in the union.
