As you might expect, there aren't a lot of options here at the gateway to Death Valley. I was pleasantly surprised to find this one. More so, because it was open. They seem to have irregular hours.

We stopped by there last week. They were completely closed down. The inside was empty and the sign on the building was gone. It was disappointing. We really had enjoyed our previous visit.

Much of the old railroad grade of the now abandoned Tonopah & Tidewater runs along California 127. Covering all of the rout would take a couple of days, ut some of the interesting sections can be visited in a one day outing from Las Vegas....More
