The rugged beauty of fall in the high-altitude desert of Winnemucca, Nevada.
Before coming to Winnemucca, Nevada, everyone had warned me that the town was hardly more than a barren wasteland. But as the sun began to set on my first day living in Winnemucca, I was charmed by the amber glow of the mountains, cloud streaked sky above, and quaint desert town spread out before me.
