Pioche, Neveda - Walker family reunion

The small town of Pioche is a very visually interesting place. This is where my Grandma LaRue was born 80 years ago. Most of the descendants of LaRue and Lionell, little babies and all, spent a morning walking/driving around this small town last week. I wish I had more time (and another hand) while we were touring around to take pictures. Sarah has a bunch of photos on her blog if you are interested. Parts of Pioche are completely abandoned but you could easily imagine the bustle when the town was thriving. This mining town, at one point, accounted for 60% of Nevada's murders, or so the tour CD stated. Wow.
