Photo Friday: Rhyolite Ghost Town (Nevada)


Rhyolite began in early 1905 as one of several mining camps that sprang up after a prospecting discovery in the surrounding hills. The town declined almost as rapidly as it rose, its population nearly zero by 1920. Now there are just a few remnants of the town that was. The area is an easy drive from Death Valley, California, where we were visiting at the time.
