Carlton's Log: sick day

Photos from a trip through Randsburg, CA, "the living Ghost Town". Located in the hills south of Ridgecrest (yeah, that name doesn't conjure up any mental logistics either...) Randsburg is a desolate community of rambling hills, vacant shafts, and lots of character. Thor and I travel through Randsburg at least once a month on our way to Bishop for work meetings. A couple of trips back we stopped long enough to get a few photos.

I'll post more info in the coming days. Today my head is exploding and I have a deep sexy(?) voice from the lovely viral nasty that has moved in and is residing there. ugh.

Seeya tamale.

s'mee said...

Great photos!
I hope you feel better very, very soon. It is truly awful to feel awful.

Ya know. You just never stop, taking my breath away-

Love these photos. When the TVA put in their dam they ended up flooding a few small towns like this. Every once in awhile I think about those towns, just as empty as this one.

s'mee said...

Thanks all. I went to the funeral than came home and died myself. ugh.

Rynell, thanks on both counts...I'm staying in and taking it easy.

Lisa, thanks -you too.

Adan, this is a very interesting blip on the map. 3 TINY towns, this one set off the main highway on a loop. But all three combined maybe 250 people? I can't imagine living way and the hooey out there. Definately characters.
