We headed out to Ridgecrest California yesterday,
its about 138 miles one way or so. Having to get there is a big hassle because you have to go through Death Valley National Park to get there. Knowing that Kaley was waiting for me on the other side was well worth the trip. As we got down into the valley both my husband and I was watching the temperature in the van to see how hot it was out side. Well we went through there about 5:00 P.M. the hottest time of the day and the temp read 121degrees outside, boy that's toasty and when I put my hand on the window, it was hot! As we climbed up the hill to get up and out from the valley you climb up pretty high the temp up there was 92, big difference. We picked up Kaley at the local Walmart there, took her shopping for some school cloths and ate supper and headed home. I think I went to bed at midnight. It seems like I lay ed my head down and the alarm went off. 5:00 A.M. comes around to fast.
History from Nevada......
A couple of nights ago, my husband and I went out in the hills for a ride. I asked him if we can go out the the Rhyolite Graveyard, so off we went. For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about well here is your history. Rhyolite
is in Nevada which boarders Death Valley, Back in the early 1900's it was a booming mining town with over 10,000 people in it. It was one of the largest towns in Nevada, Around 1906-1908 the mines busted and was over, the folded up the streets and left town, now
all that remains are a few frames of buildings, train depot, bottle house and the grave yard. As we went walking around to look at the graves, some were dates back in the 1890's Vandals hit it a few years back and broke up most of the wooden markers so you don't know who's there. Here are some pictures so you can see for yourself! Enjoy!!
