Nevada Highway 50 MTB Road Trip-313

Betting on Mountain Bike Tourism (And Cannabis)

When Travel Nevada and the Carson City and Ely City Bureau of Tourism put together a crackpot team of cyclists, historians, and trail whisperers to check out some of the trails crisscrossing Nevada’s Highway 50 – you know, the stretch poetically described as “the loneliest road in America” by Life magazine in 1986 – Teal Stetson-Lee was obviously on the list. The six-day trip, known as the “Nevada Highway 50 MTB Road Trip,” was an exploratory effort into embracing mountain bike tourism here in Nevada. We caught up with our original athlete ambassador to hear all about it, and we can tell you this – we’re totally on board with this mountain bike tourism thing. Read more

That’s especially true for mothers, despite the socially acceptable use of wine for overwhelmed moms.

Cannabis and the Tattoo Artist

Life is full of happy coincidences, and for Anthony Ortega, a blank wall in exactly the right spot turned out to be one of them. “I got involved in the Reno Mural Expo and the wall they chose for me to paint was right behind Mynt,” he says with a grin.

Myrcene is one of them. Read more
