    There are a handful of ancient petroglyphs within walking distance of US50 on the east side of Fallon. The ancient glyphs are in fairly good condition, a short walk from the parking area and free to see.

    Pull off on the Archeological Area turn off east of town.

    Sand Dunes in the desert

    Sand Mountain is a natural sand dune, originally surveyed in 1859. Sand Springs station was founded about a mile away, which was a stopping point of the Pony Express.

    There was an outpost station built next to the dune in the 1860, but was buried when the dune shifted in the winds. It was unearthed in 1972 during and archeological dig.

    Many of the locals bring their 4-wheelers and ATV's to the dunes for an afternoon of fun.

    Favorite thing: "TOPGUN is the code name and common name of the U.S. Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor (SFTI) course.

    TOPGUN was formerly known officially as the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School, and was established on March 3, 1969 at NAS Miramar, California after a United States Navy report recommended that a graduate-level school be established to train Fleet fighter pilots in air combat tactics to counter the relatively poor air combat performance being experienced by Navy aircrews over Vietnam.

    In 1996, the transfer of NAS Miramar to the Marine Corps was coupled with the incorporation of Top Gun into the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center (NSAWC) at NAS Fallon, Nevada. TOPGUN instructors currently fly the F/A-18 Hornet and the F-16 Falcon."
