Rhyolite Ghost Town



  We drove through Rhyolite Ghost Town on our way North. Rhyolite is in Nye County, Nevada. It's in the Bullfrog Hills, about 120 miles northwest of Las Vegas, near the eastern edge of Death Valley. You can still find several remnants of Rhyolite’s glory days here. Some of the walls of the 3 story bank building are still standing, and part of the old jail. The train depot is one of the few complete buildings left in the town, so is the Bottle House. The Bottle House was restored by Paramount pictures in Jan, 1925. The town became a tourist attraction and a setting for motion pictures. Here are a few photos I took of the bottle house.


This place was so strange and amazing!





   We came across this old, abandoned Union Pacific train car. I took a few photos of Steven since he was brave enough to climb it.







   These are just a few of the cool things you will find in Rhoylite. We will definitely be back to explore more!
