Head underground and you’ll find the Techatticup Gold Mine, which many historians consider to be the oldest and richest gold mine in Southern Nevada. An urban legend says that $1 million in gold remains buried in the walls, but it would require $2 million in labor and machinery to extract it. However, if you step outside and walk through the Eldorado Canyon ghost town, you’ll find a different kind of treasure, with old gas station pumps, vehicles, and a general store. Point your camera in any direction and you’re sure to get a cool shot.
