Fire and Ice: Nevada Magazine Has it All

The 2010 Wild Horse Ice Fishing Derby at Wild Horse Reservoir was well attended.
Nevada Magazine’s November/December 2012 issue is now available on newsstands throughout Nevada. In it are a feature that delves into the logistics of fighting wildland fires in the state, as well as a story on ice fishing, among others that prep travelers for the holiday and winter seasons.

Also highlighted in the issue are the Lyon County Museum, Las Vegas and Reno coffeehouses, holiday events, Nevada-made gift ideas, a history story about the brutal winter of 1889-90, and a Q&A with Secretary of State Ross Miller, a trained MMA fighter who won a professional bout in August.

The other feature story in the issue is titled, "Silver State on the Silver Screen." Learn anecdotes from classic Nevada films such as "The Misfits" and "The Professionals," but also discover where travelers can go to capture a piece of movie history. For instance, there is a time capsule in Rachel, outside of the town's Little A'le'Inn restaurant, left by the cast and crew of "Independence Day."

The magazine is currently offering a number of great holiday gifts, such as the 2013 Nevada Historical Calendar and 75th-Anniversary Edition subscription combo. Find out more at, or by calling 775-687-0603.
