Gold Reef Nevada Overview

Gold Reef was a mining camp located in Esmeralda County, Nevada.

In the summer of 1909, a gold strike was made and a camp was established by October that included a store, cafe, and a saloon.  Unfortunately, the camp did survive the year.

Speaking of mobile apps, two of my favorite mobile apps for exploring the southwest are two different mapping apps one that builds your schedule and the other helps me look to see if my rural destination is taking me to private or public lands. Highly recommend both!
