Travel Tips for Ely
Visit and explore the Nevada...
Visit and explore the Nevada Northern Railway Museum! It is one of the most complete vintage railway complexes in the nation. When the railway closed in the 1980's, it was left virtually intact. Steam and diesel locomotives are available for rent! You can be an engineer of either one. Check out the web page! http://www.nevadanorthernrailway.net/ Ely is a classic American small town. Maybe more classic than most... it depended on the local mining operations. Although scaled back today, mining is still important. Ely is also close the Great Basin National Park and Lehman Caves.
Ely - Never a dull place
"It may be high dessert, but we do get rain!"
Ely is situated on the crossroads of Highway 93/6 and Highway 50. After living for 20 years in Alaska with only a couple highways and even fewer places to drive to, living here is a luxury. The roads are smooth and great for biking. The sun shines a lot but the weather is relatively mild. Even though this is high dessert (and at 6500' elevation) we do get the occasional storm. The photo is heading south towards Ely on Highway 93, about 6 miles outside of Ely.
End of October included changing colors on the leaves, geese flying south, and some snow and hail.
