Here and There

July is hot, hot, hot, but a wonderful time for reflection on how fortunate we are to live in our Country, in our State, and in particular, our Town! Boulder City’s annual 4th of July Parade is classic fun even if your kid isn’t on a float. And it’s FREE!

Cathedral Gorge State Park is up Hwy 93 about 190 miles near Panaca. Leftovers at the bottom of a bygone lake, massive, craggy buff colored spires and canyons, like all geological formations, are a slow but steady work in progress. One of the first four designated State Parks, Cathedral Gorge has a comfortable picnic area for day use, and a group use area. Yummy Dutch Oven group lunch may be pre-arranged at or 775-728-4460. With luck, Ranger Cody Tingey, Park Supervisor, and his wife will oversee their fabulous Dutch Oven potatoes with bacon and onions, their secret herb/spice seasoning on spectacularly succulent chicken, and definitely save room for another secret Dutch Oven version of Peach Cobbler! A little exercise is available exploring the trails after lunch. The Visitor’s Center is full of information about the area, has great gifts for young and old, and has friendly, knowledgeable staff to round out an excellent experience.

When you boat or ride jet skis on Lake Mead this summer, be sure to wear those life vests! The life you save could be your own!

Neat Nevada Notes: Less than 40 miles northeast of Reno, Pyramid Lake was named for its large pointy island near the eastern shore in 1844 by John C. Fremont. A salty remnant of Lake Lahontan, Pyramid Lake is endorheic – the Truckee River flows in, but the only way out is by evaporation or seepage. Some notable endorheic lakes are Mono in California, Crater in Oregon, and the Great Salt Lake next door in Utah. Pyramid is about 15 miles by 11 miles, and is completely within the boundaries of The Paiute Indian Reservation. Permits may be purchased on line at; their e-mail is, or information by phone at 775-476-1156.
