Rhyolite Mercantile store

Taken in the ghost town of Rhyolite, Nevada close to Death valley.

The ruins of Cook Bank can be seen in the background.

Although a ghost town today, Rhyolite was the third largest city in Nevada by 1908, and the population of the city reached approximately 8,000. Reference www.rhyolitesite.com/tour.html
