Wells & the American Discovery Trail

Episode #23 of the Nevada Magazine radio show features respective interviews with Matt Holford, president of the Wells Chamber of Commerce, and Ted Oxborrow, State Coordinator for the Nevada portion of the American Discovery Trail.

In the first half-hour, Holford talks about all the great things the historic Northern Nevada town of Wells has to offer. "Great hunting. Great fishing. Recreation's the mainstay," Holford says. He goes on to discuss the town's many upcoming events, such as the Nevada State Fiddle Contest (June 14-15), Wells Fun Run Car Show and Shine (July 26-28), and Race to the Angel (September 7), as in nearby Angel Lake. For more info on these events, go here.

In the show's second half-hour, Oxborrow covers the Nevada portion of the ADT, nearly 500 miles of rugged, yet beautiful, country through the heart of the Silver State. "The most exciting state of the 14 states it goes through is Nevada," Oxborrow says. For more details on the Nevada route, go here. Oxborrow also discusses the Nevada Discovery Ride, happening right now, in which Reno woman Samantha Szesciorka is riding on horseback across Nevada on the ADT to raise awareness of wild-horse adoption.

Also, watch a video here of Brian Stark's 500-mile run across Nevada on the ADT in 2011. He accomplished the run in 12 days, 11 hours, and 28 minutes.
