IMG_1279 Nelson, NV

A old gold mining town now called Nelson was once called Eldorado by the Spaniards back in 1775. Techatticup mine was established in the area when prospectors and miners took over, a lot of the miners were deserters from the civil war. As most old gold mining towns this one has a unique history of death and violence. *watch for rattlers.....but be ready to spend the day if you have your camera..
