Rhyolite is a strange ghost town in Nevada, It was a boom mining town, but unlike others it was also a modern town. Built with reinforced concrete construction, plumbing, electricity, and two railroads, it’s almost all gone now. Part of the reason was they built the town on an alluvial fan that was prone to flash floods in the rare occasion of precipitation, things got swept away.
