Traveling through the Carson Valley, Nevada 757 cuts a straight line between Nevada 206 and U.S. 395. The state highway crosses several bridges such as this as the highway travels over several branches and tributaries of the east and west forks of the Carson River. These moist grasslands make for good farming and ranching, while many wetlands are preserved. Photo taken 07/19/09.
The state highway continues east past ranches and farms. While many parts of Nevada are arid and not suitable for agriculture, many areas such as the Carson Valley have wetlands and nearby lands with soil auitable for farming. Photo taken 07/19/09.
