There’s something ironic about Nevada. While the name means “snow-covered” in Spanish, much of the state consists of desert and is very arid. Its famous city Las Vegas, meanwhile, used to be abundant with grasses that was why Mexican explorers named the area as such.
Nevada is the 36th state in the United States. Its capital is Carson and biggest city is Las Vegas. Due to its silver mining industry, it is officially nicknamed as “The Silver State.”
There’s more to know about Nevada than just Las Vegas. While it is famous for Las Vegas’ casinos and resorts (as well as the state’s zero income tax), Nevada also features isolated natural wonders which we will mostly discuss here in this gallery.
