I have lost track of how many photo trips I have made to Nevada. I’ve just returned from a thousand-mile loop around the state to photograph autumn color. Most photographers think of Vermont or New Hampshire as the best places to be in late September. My latest publication covers my favorite aspen groves at the peak of fall foliage color. Traveling into mountain forests is a treat and a rare opportunity if you pick the right dates. Directions are in my issue #154 - Autumn in Nevada. Ghost towns, gold mines, slot canyons and spectacular desert landscapes can be found at the end of many dirt roads across the Silver State. Rent a 4x4 and head out to drive the loneliest roads in America.
