Today is Earth Day, which is a wonderful time to appreciate the natural beauty all around us! This picture from the Laura Mills Collection has a beautiful view of Sand Mountain from around 1950.
Today, Sand Mountain Recreation Area is managed by the Bureau of Land Management along with nearby Sand Springs Pony Express Station and Desert Study Area. The sites are about 25 miles east of Fallon on highway 50. This area is a real treasure of Churchill County and we strongly recommend visiting!
