Looking Back- Mining The Miners

Awhile back, we took a trip up to Virginia City, Nevada. Virginia City got its start as a mining town and was a boom town. This picture was taken while we were taking a train ride on the Virginia and Truckee Railroad.

Mining the miners in Virginia City before running off to that new silver strike in Tombstone to take a meeting with some man named Wyatt.
