Rhyolite Mercantile Store

Rhyolite Mercantile Store

This is another picture from our vacation last year out west to Las Vegas and the surrounding area. Rhyolite, Nevada once once a bustling frontier town in the early 20th century and is now a classic western ghost town with a population of only the dead buried nearby.

Rhyolite was an eerie place to visit and on the day we passed through we were the only living souls to be found and if we weren’t talking the only sound to be heard was a brisk, whistling wind blowing through the dusty remains of a once thriving community. I can only imagine the scenes and sights that may have played out at this mercantile store in its days of operation.
