If you love abandoned places, then the Silver State is the place to be. Our state is full of the creepy remains of old towns and buildings that were abandoned long ago to wither in the desert. A great example of this is the town of Warm Springs Nevada. It’s located in the middle of nowhere, right along the Extraterrestrial Highway. It’s completely surrounded by nothingness and Tonopah is at least 50 miles away. Just a few buildings in this town remain, but that’s not the main attraction: hiding in this ghost town is an amazing abandoned hot spring. The turquoise-blue pool is like a little oasis in the middle of the desert. The next time you’re traveling along State Route 375, you’ll definitely want to stop for a soak (though nowadays you can’t do so, bummer). Check it out:
