On 06/19/2019 Jim Herring. Bob Croke, Ron Ziance and I drove to Beatty Nevada to visit the Ghost town of Carrara and Fluorspar Canyon. At the Carrara site we drove up to the old marble quarry. It was a very rough road, but we eventually reached the quarry site. We then drove to Fluorspar Canyon, an area that is dotted with dozens of old mines, adits, and open pit mines. We also saw nearly a dozen wild burros while hiking around. Click here for pictures and a description of these sites ...
