On a recent trip out to California's High Mojave Desert I went through a little ghost town where a few people still live, most of them hoping that the mining company that started the town will be coming back someday and they'll make a fortune. Whatever the company was mining is gone, of course, so they are, too. And unless somebody discovers gold or silver or a viable vein of peanut butter, they aren't likely to be back. They did leave some interesting stuff behind, though.
This is the mayor's personal limo.
And then there's the shopping mall. It's not quite as big and fancy as it looks from the front, though.
I even decided to try that last shot in bw. I think I like that better. Maybe they should paint the town in black and white. Instead of tin and rust.
And then there's the town's obviously thriving saloon/restaurant. I was in town for nearly an hour and only saw one car go by here, and that one was mine leaving town.
And what ghost town would be complete without a place for the Holy Ghost? I think they ran out of paint after doing this building, because it's just about the only place in town that has any.
