Another image found in Rhyolite, a Gold Rush era ghost town just east of Death Valley. It’s changed a lot since the 1980’s when it was a treasure trove of wonderful things and images. But this image shows the kinds of things that were there.
This image is from an amazing old tractor I found at Rhyolite, a Gold Rush era ghost town just east of Death Valley.
I captured this image in Rhyolite, a Gold Rush era ghost town just east of Death Valley. While Rhyolite isn’t what it was in the 1980’s, a little still remains and I was fortunate to get this image the last time I was there.
Although this image is (like many of my images) from a Gold Rush ghost town, instead of California, this one was in Coaldale, a small town in west central Nevada along Highway 95 between Reno and Las Vegas. Again, wandering around and found this in an unexpected corner.
I found this image the way I usually do – totally by accident. The best way to get amazing images!
I was driving west from Minneapolis in April and ended up unexpectedly in a freak blizzard. Could barely get through. Saw a small town – nearly a ghost town – and pulled in just to see what was there. Was up to my knees in snow when I saw this and took a couple of shots.
Still one of my favorite images.
