I say we're home again because we're back in Pahrump, NV, where we used to live. We'll be spending a month here using the sweet gym at the Nevada Treasure Resort to kick our weightloss (thanks to the Personal Trainer Diet
) into high gear.
I felt bad about not regaling you with pictures from Tonopah. So here are pictures from the next town south of Tonopah, Goldfield, NV. What's Goldfield all about? Here's the plaque in front of the courthouse (above) to tell you:
It's a nice stone carved plaque, but honestly, this is a boom/bust town currently in it's bust cycle, the way Tonopah is. Here's the typical buildings you see there:
I peeked inside one of these derelict mining era buildings and here's what I saw:
So...yay? Don't say I never give you pictures!
We stopped there for breakfast on the way down to Pahrump. The pickings were slim, but we still managed to get two omelets for our trouble. One wonders how people get by in tiny 'no supermarket' towns like these. It was a little depressing.
