Death Valley ➝ Weird Nevada

Our Travels

In March 2019, we embarked on a road less traveled – which is typical, but this time along a route that would trace the “path of intrigue” between Death Valley, CA and Western Nevada.

This was off the beaten path at its best

We had been fascinated for years with this crease of geography between the two states, mainly for its quirky cultural deposits (gold and silver having long since tapped out). From Amargosa Opera House at Death Valley Junction to the ghost town of Rhyolite, to mind-bending Goldfield with multiple cars pointed upside down in the ground, to Tonapah – site of the haunted Mizpah Hotel – the road did not disappoint.

How could you not love dropping into the Area 51 Alien Center or contemplating the Alien Cathouse Brothel (from the exterior)? This was off the beaten path at its best, especially if you dig clown hotels, pioneer towns and pursuing haunted spirits, like the Lady in Red.
