at the Brothels in Crystal Nevada!
While not technically a brothel, we started at the Short Branch Saloon.

Here are some of the locals we met. The lived in Pahrump but felt Pahrump was getting too crowded when they put up a second stop light, so they moved to Crystal!

This poor soul was discovered in one of the wals of a brothel during a renovation.

As seen below, both of her hands have been cut off to prevent identification I suppose.

This is Road Dog. He was found by one ofthe locals here sitting in the median of the road on his hind legs, front legs up in the air as if he was begging for a ride.

We had a great time out there. One local advised us to skip the Brothel Museum, another advised us to "go see it". We were glad we went to see it.

Just remember that they are "brothels", not "whore houses" becuase whores don't get paid! Or so they told us!
