Ghost towns always interest me. Rhyolite was a mining boom town in Nevada, very near Death Valley, and now it is a ghost town with very few structures, or parts of structures, left. But during it’s heyday the population was around 8,000, they had a casino, a bank, a jewelry store, a school, and more that I don’t know about. The views are quite wonderful, as are the wild donkeys we saw along the road. I hope you enjoy some of the photos.

Landscape at Rhyolite. The small white mound in the forefront appears to be a mine.
What remains, Rhyolite
Rusty colors on a railroad car, probably a more modern ruin.
The Bottle House. It appears that a bit of renovation is going on inside the house.
