Garnet Nevada History

While not much remains of the former community, Garnet is most notable for being the site of the Apex Landfill, a large landfill that (while located Garnet) is named after Apex, another nearby extinct town in Clark County. The landfill is among the biggest in the world and is the largest in the United States, as measured by tons of waste accepted per day.

Speaking of mobile apps, two of my favorite mobile apps for exploring the southwest are two different mapping apps one that builds your schedule and the other helps me look to see if my rural destination is taking me to private or public lands. Highly recommend both!
