I invite all our viewers to enjoy this amazing series of clips of the mighty Carson Canyon. The road that runs along the rim of the canyon is the old V&T railroad grade which runs along scenic overlooks, cliffs and precious views of the Pine Nut Mountains. Below at the bottom of the canyon is the Carson River & remnants of mills that once were part of old Empire City in the 1860's. This is like a wild roller coaster ride so hang on tight sadly the road will come to an end and turning around meant we had to do this twice. Twice the adventure and twice the fun the old grade is full of surprises believe me lol. At one time train tracks ran through the canyon importing and exporting supplies at each mill. Eventually when the milling stopped the train did stop in Empire City so back in the day the early pioneers also had a means to do business in nearby Carson and Virginia City by using the Virginia & Truckee Railroad as a means for transportation.
