Well, here we are with the majority of the interior photos of the Castle Dome Ghost Town, but we also have the mining town for tomorrow.

Sorry for so many pictures, but I really wanted you to get the flavor of the town and show the wonderful sights that made it one of our favorite places to visit. We all agreed that this is a must see for anyone in the area.

Tomrrow will be the remainder of our journey exploring the past. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have reliving it here in this journal.
