Monday's Postcard 2015: Nevada
In 1931 the Pair-O-Dice Club was the first casino to open on Highway 91, the future Las Vegas Strip. Nevada has more mountain ranges than any other state, with its highest point at the 13,145 foot top of Boundary Peak near the west-central border.
The ghost town of Rhyolite still pays homage to early pioneers and their dreams. Remains of the depot, glass house, bank and other buildings are on display.
