16sep19--Aphrodite M Wirtz, You are very welcome! I wish I had more time every day to pass on fantastic information to which SkylineWebcams introduces us viewers. Though not exotic for me because this location is with-in the 48 contiguous states of the USA ( my home country ) and I've been in this state - this location is very erotic!! With the silver discovery, Virginia City - Nevada became as important to the world as any other financial leader of its time. Tulip bulbs were more valuable than anything at one point in time. Silver's value equaled golds when the discovery of silver happened here. Much like the discovery of gold in 1848-9 in California led to it's becoming a state, so did silver's discovery lead to Nevada becoming a state in record time. EnJoy EnJoy
Hi Zoro! In the USA, you park going the same way traffic is traveling. We drive on the right side of the roadand the steering wheel and controls are on the left side of the vehicles.
I've noticed that everyone parks facing the same way,is that a thing in the USA?
Thank you Skyline for the Virginia City webcam. Thank you Capture Sam for providing historical information for this wonderful little town. I've lived in Nevada for most of my life. I feel so humbled to see it here as I had visited Virginia City 18 years ago. This town, in the day, was the epitome of the Wild Wild West.
