'Flood fighting is in our DNA': To live by the Feather River is to know its power and danger

Gold Point, Nevada

Dan Adams serves up drinks at the saloon in Gold Point, a dusty former mining town in western Nevada, 3 hours northwest of Las Vegas. Adams is among the dedicated volunteers working to restore the town, which boomed when gold was discovered here in 1908 and went bust a couple of years later.
