“Welcome to Elko, the Gateway to the Cowboy West. Northeastern Nevada is rich with western lore and stunning natural high desert scenery. Founded during the construction of the transcontinental railroad, Elko has grown from a small ranching community to a town that prospered through gold discoveries and most recently oil/gas. The area serves as the launching point for hunting, heli-skiing, horseback, adventure ranching, mountaineering, ATV, and fishing. I hope you enjoy your stay under Nevada’s blue sky that frames the impressive Ruby Mountains, and is a backdrop to our vast open spaces.”
