Rhyolite, Nevada 1909

For those not in the know, Nevada is one of the great 4×4 destinations you can find.  It has a long and right history and features many ghost towns and old mining camps.  Combined with a lower state population, this translates into vast tracks of land which is yours to explore, and the odds of running into a ton of others is remote.  But you have to be prepared for the climate and rough terrain.
