Ghost Towns and Old Mines of the West : I've been intrigued by the ghost towns and mines of the old west since I was a kid.  i've read many books about these old towns, but nothing quite beats being there and feeling the aged wood, smelling the fresh air, and listening to the silence and imagining what it must have been like during the boom years.

St. Deroin, NE : In 1853 St Deroin was laid out by its founder, Joseph Deroin, along the Missouri River.  The village was one of many small settlements for river traffic in the 1870's.  The town eventually died out by the 1920's due to the shifting river channel and an outbreak of cholera.  Nearby is Indian Cave which dates back several thousands years.  Within the cave are petroglyphs.  The origin and period in history remain a mystery.

Los Cerrillos, NM : Los Cerrillos, NM was founded in 1879, but the area was earlier inhabitated by Native Americans and Spanish explorers.  The area is rich in turquoise deposits.  MIning was the principle reason for the town.  The 3,000 miners in the area supported the 21 saloons, 5 brothels, and 4 hotels.  Mining is still active but on a smaller scale.  The town was also used for the filming location of the "Young Guns" movies.  Nearby is the Cerrillos State Park.  The 5 miles of trails takes you to abandoned mining shafts.  Most of them have been filled in or covered up.
