Property Photos

Most of the photos were taken in June 2016 of River Valley Ranches Unit 1 Block 17 North 1/2 of Lot 7 and the surrounding views. I also included a few of the deer out grazing in the valley to the north in the valley at Devil's Gate Ranch that same day!

It was a very cloudy day so I included photos taken the next day overlooking the valley this property sits in with the Ruby Mountains and Elko Hills from Block 46 Lot 5.

1.14 acres of land for sale 15 miles NE of Elko, Nevada sitting one block away from the N Fork of the Humboldt River! I could actually see the top of the bank of the river carved out of the valley floor from the property! She sits down on the valley floor where the river meanders thru and has pretty views of the Ruby Mountains and Adobe Mountains! It sits about 3 miles N of Interstate 80 so pretty quick access back to the busy town of Elko!

Most of the photos were taken of the property and surrounding views in June 2016. I snapped a few photos as I passed along the river at the north end of the block. A few birds took off but I caught a duck out swimming. I also included a few deer we spotted north in the valley at Devil’s Gate Ranch! That’s always such a pretty drive by the ranch fields.

It was so cloudy that you could not see the Ruby Mountains rising above the hills that surround this narrow valley so I included photos taken the next day from the west hill as noted in one of the maps. So you can see this property sitting below in the green valley where the river meanders thru and beyond it the gorgeous snowcapped Ruby Mountains and Elko Hills! Oh it’s a pretty setting from all the spring time moisture with wild flowers sprinkled about!

At the Elburz exit off I80 there is a frontage road that leads along the south. Follow that east for about 1 mile and then bend to the north where it goes under the interstate. Then head north on Columbia River Boulevard to 3rd Street. Then take Owyhee River Boulevard north to the property. This was an overgrown dirt road that was an easy drive still.

The property is flat and staked as you can see in the photos. There is a driveway off the road to an area cleared of the sage brush so a nice large spot to pull in your RV and hang out! The rest of the property is covered in sagebrush, native grass and lots of wild flowers blooming! Across the street to the west you can see the edge of the riverbank as it cuts in against the valley floor! I’m pretty short but could still see it! There are a few scattered trailers in the distance, is a cluster of neighbors a few blocks to the south but no one around in this block so lots of privacy!

This narrow valley that the N Fork of the Humboldt River flows thru has two hills that rise up on either side of it and are the lower foothills of the Adobe Mountains. You can see the Adobe Mountains rising above from the NW to the SW. They aren't near as big as the Ruby Mountains but they sure have some interesting peaks!

And then there are fabulous views of long range of the Ruby Mountains from the east to the south before they get hidden behind the Elko Hills! They sure had a lot of snow in her peaks still and I’ve heard it’s been a wet spring there! Called the Swiss Alps of Nevada she reaches up to 11,317 feet at Ruby Dome! Oh what a pretty place to watch it snow on the Rubies!

The Adobes are located N and NW of Elko and runs for about 80 miles and has an area of about 314 square miles. It’s highest summit is 8,134 feet. It's on the list of Nevada’s 172 Prominent Peaks! I found a posting on of someone that hiked to the peak. They shared how to get out to the trail and the way up to the peak. They also shared several fabulous photos overlooking across the valley and Humboldt River to the Ruby Mountains. It seems that this is becoming quite known to climbers as you will see in the photos! Cool!

Elko County contains the majority of Nevada’s mule deer and this range is home to one of the largest mule deer and antelope herds in the state. They migrate between their summer range in the Snake and Adobe ranges to winter range in the Pequop Mountains. The N Fork of the Humboldt River borders the Adobe range to the south and east.

Most of the Adobes are a checkerboard of public (Bureau of Land Management) and private ownership. This pattern is attributed to the Pacific Railway Act of 1862, where the federal government gave railroad companies free land in alternating sections as an incentive and a means to finance the overwhelming task of linking east with west by rail. Several square miles of BLM land are close by as seen in the BLM and parcel map! (BLM land is in orange). A section = 1 square mile = 640 acres. For more information on BLM land visit

Devils Gate is a large ranch at the north of Devil’s Gate Road and well worth the drive up to see the huge herds of mule deer that enjoy the hayfields here! Sure enough we spotted a few as we drove by about an hour earlier! She sure is a pretty ranch and included a few photos of her in December 2014 in the additional photos area below. The wintertime photos also give you an idea of how much snow it receives and what these beautiful landscaped mountains look like in the winter time! They don’t get a ton of snow but what snow they get sticks around in the cold winter!

Within an hour’s drive of the property are some famous fishing holes, Wildhorse Reservoir, Ruby Lake, and South Fork Reservoir!

Wildhorse Reservoir is a 2,800 acre premium trout reservoir 60 miles north of the town of Elko. In 2011 I ran into some men who had just hauled a 350 pound elk from the Wild Horse State Recreation Area and of course I have included photos of those as well! Hunters know the area for its elk, deer, mountain lion and bird but it's the fishermen that tell tall stories about ice fishing at Wildhorse.

Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge sits on the SE side of the Ruby Mountains. With over 12,000 acres this area is a special habitat to over 207 species of birds providing feeding, nesting and a resting stop in the Pacific Flyway. On one of my first visits to Elko County some nice gentlemen told me that Ruby Lake was the best fishing in the state!

South Fork Reservoir and State Rec area is about 20 minutes S of Elko. It covers 1,650 acres and is surrounded by 2,200 acres of wildlife-filled meadow land and rolling hills and known for its trophy-class trout and bass.

The zoning allows for a home, manufactured home or year round RV use! I have really seen the areas along Interstate 80 continuing to grow and it seems it’s mostly the locals who buy properties out here to build a home in the country side. Yet you’re still within a reasonable drive to the bustling town of Elko for a garlic steak sandwich at the Star Hotel in downtown Elko!

I own a piece of land at the top of the hill that sits on the west overlooking this valley and keep telling myself someday I am going to build myself a little place there and watch it snow on the Ruby Mountains! This would be a great spot for a fisherman to hang out and tie some fishing lures! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )
