Bring Your Dreams (#673)

Part of a Boom and Bust era where precious gold was found and extracted from the earth, Goldfield rose out of the scrabble scape of Nevada’s Great Basin to be a field of wealth  for close to 40 years.

Between 1903 and 1940 the population was up to 20,000 making it the most populated town in Nevada.  When the rich deposits were depleted, all but 267 people moved on.

I drove into Goldfield with the intention of passing right through on my way north to Reno.  But then 2 things caught my eye: an old truck with a patina of rust and a big parking lot for my 45 feet of motorhome towing a car.  I just had to stop.

    what are the white knobs all over the truck? Did you do some prospecting while you were there? You never know.
