"The rhyolite cemetery was hard to find. To find it there is just a sign that says "cemetery" and points left to a dirt road,
and you can't even see it until you're right in front of it (due to the lack of grave marks[ers]). All of the unmarked graves are
just huge rows of small dirt mounds. There was only a few graves with markers, and a few of those markers were made
of wood, so i'm not even sure if there were ever words there. ......the cemetery has a very old fashioned wooden gate
attached to the surrounding fence and as you enter there is a large marker that says something about the history of
Bullfrog-Rhyolite, and there are (I think) 4 or 5 rows of unmarked graves, and there [are] a few unmarked graves (that
are just basically randomly scattered throughout the cemetery) that are surrounded by their own little fence (about 5ft x 5ft).
There are a few marked graves around the outside edges of the cemetery. I also counted 234 unmarked graves (just dirt
mounds."
