We were lost in the middle of nowhere and trying to find our way back to a main road when we came across this creepy abandoned ghost town with cabins. Many of the roads had been washed out by the very wet year, so it was hit or miss as we aimed our vehicle back towards the paved roads.
There are two of us on this explore, but we did notice some very strange noises and whispers, which could just be the wind. Neither of us were whispering in this video. Let us know what you think.
We had no history of this place when we found it. We were trying to navigate dirt roads to get back to a good road. A storm was coming in quickly. We didn't get to spend as much time as we had wanted to at this location, but we may go back for another night time video. Let us know what you think.
THE STORY OF THIS ABANDONED CABIN:
Born: December 19, 1873
Died: December 29, 1962
Maiden Name: Reed
The story is a sad one, a real rags to riches to rags story of one woman, Josie Pearl (the queen of the black rock desert). Some have tried to romanticize Josie's life, but what I see is a sad story of how Josie went from rags to riches, only to go back to rags and die alone in the middle of nowhere.
This abandoned "Ghost Town" is 96 miles from the nearest town of Winnemucca. She was so lonely she would drive those 96 miles just to talk with someone.
