Rhyolite, Nevada Ghost Town

Just on the Nevada side of Death Valley was a ghost town that we decided to stop and see. It was so hot there that I didn't have to wonder why no one wanted to live there anymore. However, since then we've been in lots of other places that were even hotter that were very well populated. I guess I'm just not a hot weather kind of girl, dry heat or not.
