Rhyolite is a ghost town (still with a few sparks of life) just over the Nevada border from Death Valley. It's a picturesque place, as we'll see in the next few posts. The town's web site is here. It tells us "It was the third largest city in Nevada by 1908. And the population reached approximately 8,000 in the city! With a total of 10,000 in the Bullfrog Mining District, this included several small towns in the area and even part of Death Valley, California."
