I couldn't pass up a chance to stop at a ghost town so shortly after leaving Death Valley Jim made a sharp left and we arrived at Rhyolite.

Rhyolite was a booming mining camp in the early part of the 1900's. In 1907 it had a population of between 6,000 and 8,000. But in 1908 the mining started to peter out and by 1920 Rhyolite had a population of 14.
