We ended up at Pioche after a failed attempt to find the site of Deer Lodge ghost town! Cat recognized Pioche right away from old pictures of the town from the 1800's she had seen. Its amazing how little the place has changed!
Pioche is a charming semi ghost town that still supports a small population as well as a grocery store, gas station and restaurant.
The famous Million Dollar Courthouse is still in awesome condition (for a million bucks it had better be!) and was the first thing Cat recognized from her ghost town books! This place was totally worth the visit to ghost town fanatics like us!
