Ghost Town of Rhyolite, Nevada

Left: Rhyolite mercantile, Right: General store

Left: unidentified building, Right: School

Gold was discovered here in 1904, and the town had upwards of 10,000 people within three years. The Panic of 1907 is said to have crippled the town, and the mine closed in 1911. We had a nice picnic lunch next to the old train station.
