I'm glad to see you have my tales of Mina still up on your ghost site. Truth is still stranger than fiction. On my first night in Mina a deadly desert tarantula crawled up through a hole in the porch to greet us in our living room! I cooked on a wood stove and we ate by Coleman lantern light and I can tell you it was fun in those days - ''way out west'' in Mina 70's style.|

Comment by Vici: I originally wrote this tale about ghostly sightings in 2008 but part of it is missing; some friends of mine were talking at Helen and Cowboy's - the local bar and hotel in Mina, and one really nice lady who had recently moved there bought an old hotel to fix up.|
But when she stated staying there at night some strange things began to happen. There were the sounds of footsteps up and down the stairs. And doors started opening and closing. ''it was just too much. We had to leave! ''
More later from ''Gramma Vici''.

Not too far from Mina is the ichthyosaur exhibit in berlin, Nevada. This is a fun outing for the family! We visited there and found that this surrounding area was underwater a long prehistoric time ago.
If you try really hard or are just plain lucky, you might pick up a fossil out there. The one I came into possession of resembled a ''sow bug'' that little kids find and roll up into a ball. Just a simple fossil but a million years old.
