Elko Nevada Facts & Information


Much of the northern part of the state is within the Great Basin Desert, a mild desert that experiences hot temperatures in the summer and sub-freezing temperatures in the winter. Occasionally, moisture from the Arizona Monsoon will cause summer thunderstorms; Pacific storms may blanket the area with snow. The state's highest recorded temperature was 125 F (52 C) in Laughlin (elevation of 605 feet (184 m)) on 29 June 1994.


Wayne Newton owns a home in the Las Vegas area, and it was a real location for the film "Vegas Vacation."


The largest mountain range in the southern portion of the state is the Spring Mountains, just west of Las Vegas. The state's lowest point is along the Colorado River, south of Laughlin.


Climate - Nevada is made up of mostly desert areas, where temperatures can reach up to 110 degrees Fahrenheit in short, hot summers and can reach as low as 20 degrees in long, cold winters. Nevada rarely has any precipitation through out the year, but rain lies along the lee side of the Sierra Nevada Range.


Elko Events - Each January, Elko is the host to the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. This festival is a week-long celebration of life in the rural West, featuring the contemporary and traditional arts that arise from lives lived close to the land. Poetry, music, stories, gear, film, photography, food all contribute to the texture of an event that has become an annual ritual for thousands of people who value the people and cultures that live and work in the American West.


Car Shows - Hot Rod and Classic Car enthusiasts can enjoy the Hot August Nights Show every year from August 1 until August 10 in Reno and Sparks.


Once the highest concrete dam in the world, Hoover Dam offers guided tours and a museum of artifacts of the construction and its workers.


Pershing County located in Cowboy Country features the only round courthouse in the United States. Update: {the Bucks County Courthouse in Pennsylvania, constructed in 1960, is considered round. Now there are two.}
