One of the stops on my recent roadtrip was Virginia City (NV.) Famous from the western tv series Bonanza.
This is the Bucket Of Blood, the saloon that they frequently visit in the series. It looks almost identical nowadays. (They also have very good beer, something I didn’t get to taste this time, since I was driving.)
Virginia City is a very exotic place, in its own way. Everything looks like the way it was in the wild west, when this town was a sparkling mining town, where many people got extremely rich during the Comstock discovery. The old houses are well kept, and many are open to the public, either as gift shops, or museums.
We were very lucky and saw many wild horses roaming around old mining equipment in the outskirts of town. This photo is from Gold Hill, very close to the Comstock mine. These horses are Virginia Range mustangs, not BLM mustangs. We explored different parts of the Virginia Range, and Pine Nut Mountain HMA during this trip. I’m looking forward to share many more photos with you. This is just a little teaser 😉
Have a wonderful day!
