Nelson Ghost Town

These photos were taken at the
Nelson Ghost Town. 
This was my last road trip in 2009!! 
Nelson is an old mining camp in Nevada,
and there is definately lots to look at, and photograph. 
From this old red wagon, to a plane wreck used in a movie! 
 There is a barn full of stuff as well as items laying all around!!

The Historical Techatticup Mining Camp.

Full tank of gas a must.
US 95 ten miles south of Boulder City,
then east onto Hwy 165.
(Look for the bullet pocked historical marker by the road.)
Follow about 20 miles, through the mostly-abandonded town of Nelson,
and look for what looks like an old Texaco station on your left.

34 miles from Las Vegas!!
