360° VR Panoramas of Northern and Central Nevada
The Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge
In the remote northwest corner, Nevada

This is a little visited corner of Nevada with no towns (other than Denio Junction on the state line) and only one paved road. The reasons to come here are the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge (formerly the Sheldon Antelope Range), rock hounding for opals, and a few interesting hot springs.
