  • I have been here several times to share Rhyolite with friends. Ghost towns are usually a collection of deserted wooden shacks. This is quite different. You see several two story masonry and concrete b...  more »
  • Rhyolite is found shortly afterwards Beatty, in Nye County in Nevada, 1 hour north-east of Death Valley. The ghost town and its ruins are now a tourist attraction and the set of many productions. The city was founded during the gold rush, as a field for striking miners being situated in a favourable position, or in a sheltered desert basin near the Montgomery Shoshone mine. From a photographic point of view, we had high expectations for this place but as we approached the ruins we immediately knew we had taken half a blunder. Probably something has changed recently because, for example, the train station (interessantisima protagonist of several photos seen on the web) was surrounded by barbed wire and fences that prevented from approaching less than 4 or 5 meters making vain attempts by decent pictures.

  • If you are in Death valley take a detour here. The buildings that still remain standing are limited.

  • Can't believe how many times we have driven up and down hwy 95 and never knew that this was so close. Nice place to stop and walk. Must see the bottle house. Still want to look up where they got all of those bottles. Road is dirt but no problem I did towing a trailer.
  • Plenty of old structures survived. Well worth a side trip of you're in the area. Also, Goldwell Open Air Museum is right there as well.
  • This ghost town is nice. Love the ghost art installation. The day I was there the clouds sucked, not happy with the way the pictures I took came out. Will head the again in winter. Please ensure you have enough water.
  • I absolutely love this place. I have been to ghost towns all over the state of Nevada and this one is the best. I have been here a number of times. So nice absolutely worth the trip and not too far off Highway 95 if you're headed to or from Vegas
  • It's worth the hour drive from Death Valley National Park. Some artifacts prohibit entry, either for safety or preservation. Lots of interesting sites and artwork. If I'm ever in the area again, I will definitely revisit.
