Rhinolyte bottle house

Rhinolyte train depot

Last supper statues

Up early to continue drive toward Vegas. Stopped at Goldfield and saw high school(famous boxing match) and historic hotel but did not find the autos buried in sand. Most buildings are abandoned and surroundings are filled with junk/debris. Neat bottle house, however, found in town. Lunch at Beatty's Subway then on to Rhinolyte.

Rhinolyte is very cool ghost town with three room bottle house and old depot. It was old mining town and the other buildings including bank are ruins now. Adjacent is museum with fiberglass statues depicting Last Supper and one stature of fiberglass cloak and bicycle.

Continued on thru most desert but now with Joshua trees and sagebrush.

Bypassed Las Vegas without much difficulty and headed toward Zion National Park. Private campground in Sageville near entrance to park has river flowing behind park and nice pool. Lots of college age young people in pool and kids/parents tubing down river.
