Hazen is an unincorporated community in Churchill County, Nevada, United States, about 12 miles (19 km) southeast of Fernley and 16 miles (26 km) northwest of Fallon, on U.S. Route 50 Alternate. Hazen was founded in 1903 as a station on the Southern Pacific Railroad. Some sources say the town was first settled in 1869, but it doesn't appear on maps until 1903. The community was named for William Babcock Hazen, an aide to William Tecumseh Sherman. At one time Hazen had a post office, which was established in 1904. Hazen's early economy was driven by railroad workers and canal and dam builders, who patronized the town's saloons and brothels. Hazen is noted for the being the historic site of the last lynching in Nevada. At 2:30am on Feb. 27, 1905, Red Wood, AKA Nevada Red, around 30 men broke Red out of jail and hanged him from a telegraph pole 30 feet away. The Hazen Store is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). It "almost defies architectural description" according to the NRHP nomination form. Vulcan Power Company started a permitting process to drill exploratory geothermal energy wells on land leases near Hazen. The project involves a bypass road across Bureau of Reclamation property. The Hawthorne Army Depot is connected to the Union Pacific rail network by a 120-mile (190 km) single rail line beginning in Hazen.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada is an area managed by the Bureau of Land Management as part of its National Landscape Conservation System, and protected as a National Conservation Area. It is located about 15mi west of Las Vegas, and easily seen from the Las Vegas Strip. The area is visited by over 1 million visitors each year.The conservation area showcases a set of large red rock formations: a set of sandstone peaks and walls called the Keystone Thrust. The walls are up to high, making them a popular hiking and rock climbing destination. The highest point is La Madre Mountain, at.A one-way loop road, 13 miles (21 km) long, provides vehicle access to many of the features in the area. Several side roads and parking areas allow access to many of the trails located in the area. A visitor center is located at the start of the loop road. The loop road is very popular for bicycle touring; it begins with a moderate climb, then is mostly downhill or flat. Red Rock Canyon itself is a side-canyon accessible only by a four-wheel-drive road off of the scenic loop. The unnamed but often-visited valley cut through by State Route 159 is commonly, but incorrectly, referred to as Red Rock Canyon. The massive wall of rock called the Wilson Cliffs, or Keystone Thrust, can be seen to the west along this highway.

Fremont Street Experience

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas...except maybe if you pee yourself while on a zipline through the city 77 feet above the pavement. You don't forget something like that. SlotZilla, Vegas's first zipline experience has just opened. "Fliers" climb a 12 story slot machine (because ziplining across Sin City could be a gamble...on whether or not you'll lose your lunch), are harnessed up, and then take off over the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas's Fremont Street Experience mall . Ziplines in cities aren't exactly common, and there's no better city to see from that high up— they're even open into the wee hours of the morning, so you can see the mall all lit up in its neon glory. They've also got a "zoom line" coming soon— riders are strapped into a harness "Superman-style" and sent careening across the sky. Anyone that's willing to do that must be, in my opinion, some sort of superhero, right? -Roadtrippers The Fremont Street Experience (FSE) is a pedestrian mall and attraction in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada. The FSE occupies the westernmost 5 blocks of Fremont Street, including the area known for years as "Glitter Gulch," and portions of some other adjacent streets. The attraction is a barrel vault canopy, 90 ft high at the peak and four blocks, or approximately 1500 ft, in length. You are inside the world-famous Golden Nugget casino. Walk across Fremont Street and you are in poker heaven at Binion's, with world famous shrimp cocktail waiting for you down the block at the 100-year old Golden Gate. Legendary casinos, free entertainment, old-fashioned gambling hospitality – this is the vintage Vegas of the Fremont Street Experience. Some say it's almost intimate. You may even run into one of the casino owners while you sit at the blackjack table.
