We were in town for one night and before moving on we decided to visit the museum. During our travels to various countries we have visited many museums both large and small but this one was a very pleasant surprise. It has a very eclectic mix of exhibits. The guy who was working there on the day we visited had a great knowledge of the items and spent a great deal of time showing and explaining the exhibits to us. We didn't expect to be there for as long we were but it was well worth the time. The entrance is free but they do ask for donations so don't be mean!

I went here soon after I moved to WInnemucca, and it had what I wanted - a lot of information about the area including pamphlets, booklets, brochures, local magazines and newspapers. Friendly staff too

Last year, we took our landscape workshop here and this year one of the classes also went. However, I beat them all this year and went out on my own at sunrise. It was freezing! But, since it's next to the highway with lots of parking, I could stay warm in my car as I watched the first light hit the peaks then make my move toward the dunes...
I was the only one there and the going, though chilly, was easy since the rain had soaked the dunes then the snow still covered the sand in the shadows and it was firm. Though these dunes are open and one can bring his dogs, dune buggy or quad, there's a lot of space and many, many details interesting to the photographer in addition to the near-far relationship between the dunes and the snow-covered mountains.
Even the off-road tracks take on a neat abstract look along with the snow-covered ripples this morning!
Best of all, it's just ten minutes north of town and right along US 95, one of the most convenient small dune areas in all of Nevada!

It's a thing to spell out the first letter of the name of the mountain, so when I visited, looking out the kitchen window, saw the big, white M, and the second night there, went to hike. It's at the edge of town past the dog shelter, parking lot adjacent to the old army barracks, We took Sage and roommate's dog (who were supposed to be kept on the leash). It's a 9.4 mile, rated moderate, out and back trail. We just walked about 45 minutes up to the M, sat on the bench there and took pictures and trekked back down. As we were leaving the parking lot, we enjoyed the sunset.

We stopped by to take some photos and took a look in. Its a local dive bar which is in the center of downtown Winnemucca. The name of the bar is for the time Butch Cassidy and the Hole in the Wall Gang rode into Winnemucca, and made the First National Bank President George Nixon open the safe. This happened in September 1900
We also thought the next door place was fun to see - the alien encounter.
