I spent about an hour in Ione. It is a "ghost town" located way off the beaten track in central Nevada. Although it was apparent there were people living there I saw no one. It describes itself as "the town that wouldn't die". There was a mobile home used as a Baptist church and a bar that was closed. The town even had a park complete with play equipment and a white picket fence. If you are in the area I recommend you drop by and experience where these people live.
