Nevada Topography

Nevada is derived from the Spanish word "nevada", meaning "snow clad", a reference to the high Sierra mountains in the western part of the state.  Much of Nevada lies in the Great Basin, but the Sierra Nevada range rises steeply toward the west.  Visitors are drawn to Lake Tahoe and to Lake Mead, which forms an oasis behind Hoover Dam in the southeast.  In Las Vegas and Reno, gamblers are drawn to the glittering casinos, which are a major revenue source for the state.  For additional Nevada travel and tourism information, visit the official Nevada tourism site and Nevada Atlas.
