Winnemucca (Win-ah-muc-ah) is the county seat of Humboldt County in the U.S. state of Nevada and the site of a September 19, 1900 bank robbery by Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 7,174. Interstate 80 passes through the city, and is the site of a split/join of I-80 and U.S. Route 95. The town is also referenced in the North American version of the song "I've Been Everywhere", originally recorded by Hank Snow, and more recently covered by Johnny Cash. The song opens with the narrator walking "the dusty Winnemucca road" and accepting a ride to Winnemucca. However, we never do find out if he actually makes it to Winnemucca, as he spends the rest of the song listing the dozens and dozens (91 in total) of other places he's been. Winnemucca is featured prominently in the novel Revoltingly Young by C.D. Payne, and is also a setting in More Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin, where one character finds employment as a receptionist in a local brothel. It gives its name to the 2002 album by Richmond Fontaine, the alt-country band from Portland, Oregon. According to a billboard spotted along State Route 140 (the "Winnemucca To the Sea Highway"), Winnemucca styles itself "The City by Battle Mountain" (the song referenced above talks about the hitchhiker walking along "the dusty Winnemucca road"). read full wikipedia reference about Winnemucca, Nevada OTHER POPULAR DESTINATIONS IN NEVADA
