: We'll probably stop off at Virginia City and some other modern day places but I wonder if there are some "real" ghost towns out there for us Yankees to wander through.



: I'm not really looking for a 12 hour, 7,500' hike to see some foundations. Are there places that are a bit more accessible? (a couple hour hike is ok) I think even tourist-trap kind of place might be ok for a starting point.



: Any advice greatly appreciated.
