May 2016 Western Trip - Part 19
We drove through parts of Death Valley National Park on our way to Las Vegas. We have been to Death Valley several times before, but there are different highways that pass through it and different seasons of the year always present interesting sights and scenes to view. One special surprise was being able to take a short side trip to the ghost town of Rhyolite, Nevada, which is situated in the Natl. Park and where we had first visited 35 years ago in 1981.
I was glad too see that it had not changed too much and even happier to note it had not been vandalized or otherwise damaged by careless and non-thinking individuals who do not understand the significance of leaving our history intact for future generations to enjoy. Because it was late May, it wasn't completely oppressive heat yet, so we stopped for a short walk-around, and lunch out of the van's cooler and snack options.
