Border to border, the state of Nevada covers more than 100,000 square miles and the majority of that land is dry, arid desert.
It may not sound like much from that short description, but the truth is that the Silver State has so many amazing things to offer and we’ll learn about quite a few of them in this printable Explore: USA state study.
