Der Ladeninhaber war aber nicht sehr geschäftstüchtig, sich in dieser Einöde anzusiedeln! Aber ein schönes Motiv - Gruß, Ralf

Ralf, die Stadt hatte 10.000 Einwohner - bis das Gold alle war...

Impressive the story of Rhyolite...

What a darling old store, seemingly just out here in the middle of nowhere.

What a shame that it is no longer in use, or that there is even a possibility of it being restored.

I'm sure that once upon a time, it was quite a happening little place.

A nice shot of what is now almost just a memory.

Best regards from Georgia,

Mary Alice

Sadly this burned to the ground in Sept 2014. The result of a lightning strike.

This is sad. I was here again in July 2014 for a quick stop. (trip from Death Valley to Las Vegas).
