It's time for Outdoor Wednesday!
Hosted by Southern Daydreamer,where we get to post photos of anything "outdoors."
A few weeks ago, my granddaughter came to spend a week with us during her spring break.
She lives in Phoenix, we live in Winnemucca.
We met in Las Vegas. One weekend for me to pick her up, the next weekend for me to give her back to her parents.
That is a lot of desert to drive thru!!
On our way we go thru this little mining town of Tonapah, NV.
(pronounced Tone a paw, to all of us who live in Nevada. Pronounced
Ne vad a ( the vad rhymes with RAD no ahhhh)
And while Googling Tonapah we came across a little known fact to us --
It has the most haunted motel in America!!
We were so excited to see it. We thought it might be some stately old mansion or something equally as cool.
We were kind of disappointed when we drove up to this:
Just your basic, old 1960's era drive up motel.
What a deal!
To be honest... and I have to be...
it looks more dumpy than creepy.
I'll probably be going to clown hell now.
The only semi-spooky thing was this old miner cemetery that is right next to it.
In this video the host keeps saying the name of the town WRONG! You'd think if you were on Roadtrippers, you would have investigated and found out the correct pronunciation of the town you were featuring!!!
I just thought this would be a fun little "Outdoor Wednesday" to share with you.
Some haunted desert digs!
Stay at your own risk!
And don't take any Stephen King books!
