Goldfield - Nevada
Goldfield city was founded in 1892 when rich gold fields were found in the area. But, as with other settlements, the frenetic days of searching for the precious mineral came to an end when the vein began to run out. Just five years after its birth, the town was quickly abandoned, the miners moving elsewhere
and Goldfield became a ghost town.

Point Sur - California
Pt. Sur lighthouse is located atop a spectacular volcanic rock along Big Sur, California. This historic lighthouse has a modern rig that still guides ships along the treacherous coast of Central California.
Until 1972 a keeper lived with his family in a house adjacent to the lighthouse. Today this residence is still visible with the furnishings of the time.
