Today I am going to go a little off the usual path of my blog.
I have been Torn as to where to share this experience of mine. The winner is here on my blog which will also go to my Face Book, so Winner~Winner 😉
Over the Christmas Holiday Break I was blessed with an adventure! Driving across this beautiful country to visit family in Las Vegas, Go hiking in New Mexico and Sedona. I took over 3,000 photo’s there and back. It sure takes time to sign them and decide which group to share first. There are going to be 2 parts to this story, which I hope you enjoy learning about Ghost Towns.………………..
Rhyolite is a ghost town in Nye County, in the U.S. state ofNevada. It is in theBullfrog Hills, about 120 miles (190 km) northwest of Las Vegas, near the eastern edge ofDeath Valley. The town began in early 1905 as one of several mining camps that sprang up after a prospecting discovery in the surrounding hills. During an ensuing gold rush, thousands of gold-seekers, developers, miners and service providers flocked to the Bullfrog Mining District. Many settled in Rhyolite, which lay in a sheltered desert basin near the region’s biggest producer, the Montgomery Shoshone Mine.
My very first day in Vegas, I went on this Adventure with my Sister-n-law and her group “The Haunted Explorers” Though it was an unofficial trip I was stoked to be joining them with my camera in hand………..I hope you enjoy the first part of my photo journey….XO
