Above, the “Silver City RV Park” where I decided to spend the first night in Silver City.
Below, signs of a possible stealthy boon-docker in downtown Silver City, New Mexico. A buddy of mine Dave had a similar van in the 1990s and made countless trips to the desert southwest in it!
Above, the view of Silver City from Boston Hill.
Above and below, signs of how Silver City got its name….. Silver Mining! These Pit Mines are probably from the 1880s? It’s amazing to see the rocks stacked next to the pits, probably placed there by the original mines and never touched again!
Above, the 1880s home that now is the Silver City Museum. The home was built in 1881 and was the residence to a wealthy gentleman and his family until he lost his mining fortune in 1889 and moved to Long Beach California in 1892!
