Title: NV 374
Post by: Max Rockatansky on July 31, 2018, 10:19:01 AM
Went through NV 374 in 2016 on my way to Hell's Gate in Death, made a stop at the ghost town Rhyolite on the way.  Put together a small blog post on Surewhynotnow regarding the subject after going through my photos:

Seeing that glass bottle house reminds me that my stepmother, before she married my father back in the later Sixties, used to go to Nevada ghost towns in the winter, where she and her earlier husband would find glass bottles to bring back to Coos Bay-North Bend.  They would sell them in the summer north of town along US 101 in Hauser in a place called The Glass Shack. 

Doing it that way sure beats digging out the bottles in summer and selling them during an Oregon coast winter...LOL!

I was actually surprised that there as so much debris in Rhyolite that hadn't been picked over yet given how close it is to Beatty.  The plumbing system for the town was steel piping and appeared to be largely intact.  I've to some really derelict Nevada ghost towns like Aurora which are in the middle of nowhere but somehow have been picked clean of anything worth noting.
