Monthly Weather Report – October

No tricks this past month, only treats! While other teams might be haunted by the fall selling season, we’ve been spooktacularly successful! The main theme you’ll find this month (other than ghouls and gobblins) is that we’re working with multiple clients who are both sellers and buyers. Selling an existing home and then purchasing a new home can be a complicated process, but we’re smoothly guiding our clients to the finish line.

Ghost Town Road Trip!

Looking to get your ghost fix in this Halloween season? With the Pleasanton Ghost Walk sold out, it’s time to buckle up and hit the road!

Check out our map for the best routes of notable ghost towns near us!

Starting from Pleasanton, head on over to Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park in Nevada City, CA. In the heart of gold mining country, you’ll find the state’s largest hydraulic mine and a manmade version of the Grand Canyon due to the search for gold.

Next is Unionville, NV to check out the prior silver-mining town and stay at the Old Pioneer Garden B&B Guest Ranch.

After a relaxing time at the B&B head over to Silver City, ID to check out some intriguing alleyways including Avalanche Avenue and Dead Man’s Alley. It’s also a fantastic spot to explore the Owyhee Mountains.

At the farthest north is Bannack State Park, MT where you might find the ghost of corrupt sheriff Henry Plummer and his squad of “Innocents” still hunting for gold.

As you keep moving east, you’ll hit South Pass City Historic Site, WY. Due to restoration efforts, this is one of the most authentic ghost towns in the West. The mines were busy and full of riches, with the saloon named after the busiest, Carissa.

If you’re looking for a view of the Rocky Mountains, the next stop at South Park City in Fairplay, CO is for you!

Next is not technically a ghost town, but it was a bustling fort that thousands of troops were based at on the Santa Fe Trail. Fort Union National Monument in Watrous, NM is on the list due to it’s haunted past of trying to “pacify” the region’s indigenous peoples.

Also in New Mexico is the Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument in Mountainair, NM. In the early 17th century, 3 Franciscan missions were built here but eventually abandoned by Spaniards and Native Americans.

Your next stop at Goldfield Ghost Town in Apache Junction, AZ is fun for the whole family! Activities include riding a railroad, underground mining tours, a saloon, gold panning, Wild West shootouts, and horseback riding.

In its prime Rhyolite, NV had a population of nearly 10,000! It was a mining town rich with gold, even the bank had marble floors. It was founded in 1904 but by 1916 the streetlights were dark.

If you’re more of a silver person, the next stop is for you. Belmont, NV was founded due to a silver strike in 1865. It’s also popular for graffiti by mass murderer Charles Manson and his Family, it’s believed that they camped here in 1969.

For your final destination, Bodie State Historic Park, CA boasts a “state of arrested decay”. You can see over 200 buildings, coffins, church pews, and bottles of medicine.

You can always go in the opposite direction on the map – switch it up!

Each of these once busy locales have been deserted and are now quiet, eerily quiet, begging for a brave visitor like you.
