More scenes from my summer vacation
One of our vacation days, we went to Virginia City, NV. Quite a place to go, to imagine people choosing to come there to find their fortune. It's a barren, desert place, and has the feel of the old West. We saw a hokey show that guaranteed gunfighting and gunslinging. It was a pretty entertaining show, actually. We also stopped in some of the famous saloons, most of which are now operating small casinos. My favorite thing was the tour of a mine in the back of a saloon. It was just plain cool being in a real mine shaft!
Gotta love Nevada!
