Nerd's guide to Nevada parks

Nevada Friend Groups National Parks Humor Adventure Travel Hiking Wildlife Archaeology Maps + Infographics

Join these loveable nerds, Jessica and Joe, for a trip down the loneliest road in America and back in time as they explore prehistoric Nevada.

At Berlin-Ichthyosaur (say that five times fast) State Park, they put nose to dirt to dig up some reptilian bones. Following the stars, as the prehistoric nomads did, they stop to read the petroglyph and pictograph stories left on the the walls of Red Rock Canyon—just 45 minutes outside of Las Vegas. Cresting the Keystone Thrust, they admire 13 miles of vertical Aztec sandstone faces (and the rock climbers who scale them). Finally, they kick back and whisper secrets to the 5,000-year-old bristlecone pines slowly growing in the Spring Mountains.

Take a trip back in time—guaranteed you’ll learn something.
