Uncle Al and Aunt Esta's old Motel and Gas station
Gold Field Nv. My Moms side were all miners and lived in the deserts of Nv. and worked the mines from the 1900 into the 1980s. gold, Turquoise, mercury, copper, lithium, amd other important ores and metals were on the menu for the miners back in those days. I still have my uncles Hand picked turquoise, copper and even a bottle of mercury. Oh yes, I recyced the mecury, too dangerouse to keep. When we were kids we spent christmas at their homes and had the entire desert to explore. What fun that was. Then in the 1960s you still could find some nice old bottles and cans from the turn of the century even found an old horse harness so baked in the sun it was crisp. Love those trips.
