The Pony Express Trail runs through Edwards Creek Valley in the western part of Nevada in Churchill County, one of the least populated parts of the whole continental U.S. The latest U.S. Census population figures for Churchill County were just over 24,000 people with a geographic area of 5,023 square miles, the county has 5 people per square mile. On April 3, 1860 the Leavenworth and Pike’s Peak Express Company, later named the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company started a mail service based on individual riders. The riders rode from one staged relay station to another, changing horses at each station and by trading riders, riding day and night across the country. The service only lasted until October of 1861 when it was replaced by the telegraph. In 1860, there were 157 Pony Express stations about 10 miles apart. This desolate part of the U.S. was one of the obstacles faced by the riders.

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
