Mention the name Nevada and for many people it conjures up images of Las Vegas, Reno, neon-lit nights and casinos. Others will think of a vast, empty land where mountain ranges stand like mirages on the horizon and the sky seems to be bigger than anywhere else, including Montana. Certainly, our state is all those things, but it is much, much more. It is also deserted mining towns where riches were made and lost, lush oases that stand in sharp contrast to barren lands, isolated ranches the size of small countries, trees that were old when Rome was an empire, and even an honest-to-goodness glacier. Yep, a glacier.
