Welcome to Nevada Expeditions!

My name's Austin. I was born and raised on the Nevada desert, where my love for ghost towns and exploration began. During the last 18 years, I've visited and photographed hundreds of the Silver State's historic places, and in 2013 I launched Nevada Expeditions to share my journey. Over time, I've also had the opportunity to explore numerous places beyond Nevada's borders, which led to the creation of "the Unconventional Explorer" in 2018. Since then, that site has evolved into an expansion of this original site called Beyond Nevada Expeditions, helping to turn Nevada Expeditions into a more comprehensive compendium of ghost towns and historic sites throughout the Silver State, the West, and beyond.

I invite you now to join me on this photographic journey; come discover old mining camps, abandoned ranches, and even towns that people still call home. To get started, please select a county or state below!
