Nevada

Elko is the metropolis of eastern Nevada, service center for the entire northeast quadrant, and a major stop along Interstate 80. It's a pleasant town with a couple of nice parks, abundant motels, and a small casino district. The Commercial Casino features a world record polar bear, stuffed, in the lobby.
