Nelson, Nevada

The photo above is not in Nelson, but is down at the end of the road from the mining town.  It's part of the extensive Lake Mead Recreation Area.

The mining town has many buildings that are in quite decent condition, some of which are still inhabited.

This is the entrance to one of the mine shafts, but it's a teaser because you can't go far!

There are many artifacts of the mining business as well as tools and equipment scattered around.

There were dozens of vehicles in various stages of deterioration in the area. A few had been modified by someone with a good imagination.

I am amazed at this next car - a three piece back window - totally intact.  I'm sure someone restoring one of these vehicles would love to have this!
