Pyramid Lake

Six days into a long trip into Nevada’s rurals, an exploratory team from Desert Companion, the magazine of Nevada Public Radio, have visited the oddity of Thunder Mountain, found Planet X and talked about the man who made his fortune in Gerlach.

Heidi Kyser, Andrew Kiraly and photographer Chris Smith ventured out almost a week ago, seeking the soul of Nevada.

For more information about their trip, including stories and photos, go to And look for their stories in the May issue of Desert Companion.
