Today was spent looking at the various accommodation available around Elko. From townhouses to apartment, from 2 bdrm to 3 bdrm plus a basement, there’s no shortage of options for accommodation. You get a lot more value here compared to Australia and the build quality and finish far exceeds back home as well. Elko seems to be going through a boom at the moment. As houses come to market they are quickly snapped up. Some are even snapped up before being built so we’re going to have to be quick to chose something when we return in a few months.
We took a drive to the Elko Tourist Centre just before lunch, which is housed in an old homestead which was built over 100 years ago. The buildings formed what was called Sherman Station and were relocated from 60 miles south of Elko to where they are now located in 1997.
Below are some photos of a few of the buildings that make up the vistor’s centre.
Tomorrow I’m off for a visit to one of Newmont’s mines in Nevada (Phoenix) and again on Thursday (Carlin), so the next few days will be quite busy.
