While on our vacation, we visited the old mining town of Virginia City, Nevada, dating back to the 1860's and earlier. It is truly an amazing piece of history and so fascinating. The buildings are colorful, lean to one side and creaky; the sidewalks are still made of wood. Lots of lots of old Mining stories, some interesting, some gruesome and some just plain crazy. We visited a wonderful candy store that had the best fudge and candied apples we have ever tried (sorry, mom but this fudge was awesome). It was a cold, windy, clear day, but just beautiful; I highly recommend making a stop on Virginia City if you happen to be in the area.
