An hour north of Vegas and a million miles away is a swath of land that is wide and unbridled. They are The Solitudes of south central Nevada, with horizons that go on forever, mining towns that didn’t, and a fulfilling emptiness that is tonic to all the arrows of the everyday grind. Do something unthinkable. Create that one chapter in life you will always treasure.

The sepia-stained memories of a west that once was take center stage here in living color, day in and day out. It’s a land appropriately known as The Solitudes, an unruly cowlick of earth and sky and silence that speaks in a tongue understood only

While the rest of America was making the transition from the 19th century to the 20th, people were coming to The Solitudes to scratch fortunes from faraway, unnamed mountains. Towns boomed, towns busted. And in their wakes are remnants, some faint and some fascinatingly

During the early 1900’s in the days of the mining boom Goldfield was the largest city in Nevada with a population of 20,000. today it has a few hundred residents and plenty of historic buildings, an excellent collection of old fire engines and the, not to be missed, art car park (pictured bottom left).

The closest thing to metro in The Solitudes is Pahrump, a town of golf, wine and all the trappings of modernity. Any mention of population is immediately outdated as Pahrump continues to mirror the expansion of Las Vegas, less than an hour’s drive away. Aside from having the state’s first winery and an abundance of lodging, RV parks, fine dining and casino action, the town is surrounded by beautiful mountains

and within driving distance of some of the country’s most beautiful desert vistas. Considered Nevada’s Scenic Gateway to Death Valley, Pahrump is less than 60 miles from the heart of this National Park where you will find Furnace Creek and the Death Valley Visitors’ Center.

When the 19th Century was swapping the baton to the 20th, rural Nevada was a bustling place. Tent cities were rising…and folding. Yet some survived, even thrived. Such was Beatty’s destiny. While neighboring upstarts like Bullfrog and Rhyolite faded into obscurity, Beatty’s roots as a town took hold. Today, Beatty is a great place to stay and eat. Beatty is the perfect base camp to visit places like Scotty’s Castle, a historic treasure in the Northern portion of Death Valley and only minutes away from the ghost town of Rhyolite.

The town of 1100 is ringed by streams and fields that stretch toward wrinkled hills and mountains that beckon outdoor enthusiasts. In fact, Caliente is surrounded by 14 new wilderness areas and is hub to the Silver State ATV Trail. Quaint motels and restaurants line the city’s main streets while its mission-style railroad depot, built in 1923, stands apart as centerpiece of the community.

With a good stiff wind, it’d take a tumbleweed little more than a few minutes to ramble from the southern shore of Walker Lake to the town of Hawthorne. While originally a stage stop in the 1880s, Hawthorne is – as you can tell by its neat streets and a main thoroughfare that stands at attention – largely a military town. In 1927, the Naval Ammunition Depot was established here and between 1940 and 1944 the local populace boomed from 1009 to 13,000 before settling down to its current 3500 or so people. An inviting and – for the wandering soul

destination,

Hawthorne appeals to those whose interpretations of action range from boating or fishing the famous Walker Lake to catching a raging sunset over 11,239-foot Mt. Grant. Hawthorne is also a gateway to Yosemite National Park and a great home base from which to explore the many ghost towns in the surrounding area.

and that ritual of small, rural towns – the gentle, two-fingered wave from passing drivers – is a rule of the road. Life slows down in this pleasant oasis. Yet, like any other vestige of society in The Solitudes, Yerington is never more than a few minutes from the middle of nowhere.

Is it a bit twisted to think that we could actually be fascinated by things that are essentially dead?
