While finishing organizing Aunt MaryLu’s house for the estate sale, Ralph, Juanita and I took a day trip to Virginia City where we met up with friends, Matt and Sue.
It was a fun day. Our first stop was a museum. We took a train ride while waiting on Matt and Sue to get in from Reno.
Did you know that Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) began his writing career in Virginia City? I didn’t know.
I was fascinated by the museum. They replicated and old school room, clothing shop and even a printing press office. Of course the was a lot of information on miners.
There is a story about Virginia City streets being paved in Silver. The muck that the dug out while digging would harden, so they paved the streets with it. When someone analyzed the muck, it was silver!
If you’re as old as me you might remember the Cartwright’s going to Virginia City, because their ranch was near Lake Tahoe. Unfortunately very little if any of the show was filmed there.
When we met up with Matt and Sue we had lunch at a busy coffee shop. Then we browsed the stores. I managed to get in over ten thousand steps that day.
I am paying for it with pain and mini spins. Fortunately, I am back home in Vegas and can rest.
Love, Peace and Light! Rita
