Discover your Nevada – and get a chance at a Nevada backcountry Land Rover adventure


nevada-magazine-scavenger-hunt-555x370-6531849-3926543From the historical Stokes Castle in Austin to the Old Spanish Trail near Blue Diamond, Nevada is packed with caches of Old West adventure. This spring, hit the highways to discover your Nevada and to participate in Nevada Magazine’s Silver State Scavenger Hunt, which carries two Land Rover adventure prizes.

The photo scavenger hunt runs May 1 to July 31. All you have to do is submit a photo of yourself holding the May/June issue of Nevada Magazine at each of 10 locations listed in that same May/June issue, and email them to [email protected]. By submitting the photos, you’ll be entered to win one of two Land Rover Wheels Events. The adventure puts you in the driver’s seat of a Land Rover vehicle with the chance to navigate some of Nevada’s backcountry. Trained technicians will be on hand to assist drivers, and breakfast and lunch will be catered.

For a complimentary copy of the May/June Nevada Magazine, visit the Nevada Magazine, 401 N. Carson St. in Carson City, after May 1 or send a letter requesting a copy to:

Nevada Magazine
