The southwestern desert is a vast scarred landscape I love to explore. Debra tolerates it but is not keen on broken glass, rattlesnakes and abandoned mineshafts. We spent a couple of days at an RV park in Vegas and got that out of our system. A day trip to Hoover Dam was crossed off the list.
The agenda then turned to Ghost Towns so we headed Hwy 95 north
First stop Carrara NV. Historical link here:
We were limited mobility wise to roads the White Whale can handle. I will go back soon with a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
Curious buildings here with graffiti embellishments.
Next stop Rhyolite NV. Lots to see here. Ruins from the early 1800’s, countless abandoned mines and piles of tailings. Open-air Hippie Art. Bottle House. Highly recommended.
This was my first time entering Death Valley from the Nevada side. Geologically orgasmic.
I will be back soon with a pick, shovel, chisels sledgehammer and a 4-wheel drive.
