The ghost hunting was unsuccessful, but we were able to enjoy some camping above the Virginia City Cemetery on a very warm and beautiful night. We stayed at the Virginia City RV Park and didn't even bother to take any food with us — eating instead at the Cafe del Rio for dinner and the Canvas Café for breakfast.
Virginia City is home to the Comstock Lode, the largest silver deposit in the history of the United States. The discovery of these deposits in the late 1850s grew Virginia City into one of the largest and most popular mining towns in the West. The American author, Mark Twain, also called Virginia City home for a time.
