The Carson Valley is a superb place for a ranch.Sheltered by 13000 ft .tall Sierra peaks to the west and the dry Nevada plyas to the east it sits on one of the very few rivers to flow east into central Nevada. After thousands of years of weather and erosion from that river it is a large fairly level valley with incredible vistas.This is the “Park” ranch in the central part of the valley and a view I see almost every day.. The high peak is “Job’s” peak and a fixture for local identity.. The world famous ski area ,Heavenly Vally" is just to the right and a few of the ski runs are visible here in the cloud layer above.. …Winter in the Valley!… The Carson Valley,Nevada,USA…..Dennisfeatured in “Nevada The Silver State” group2-18-11Favorited 21 times as of 2-28-11viewed 153 times as of 2-28-11Taken with a Canon 7D..

    This is truly amazing. What a delight and de light is lovely too. At first I didn’t notice the houses tucked in at the bottom of the mountain and was surprised to see that people live amongst this beauty.
