Wagon Wheel History

Traces of civilization remain for a long time on the face of Death Valley. Here, on both sides of the paved highway, you can see tracks of wagons that rolled between the mining boom towns of Rhyolite, Nevada and Skidoo, California.

The mining boom towns of Rhyolite and Skidoo flourished briefly at the beginning of the 20th century. Both are now ghost towns.
