One of the really fun things we used to do was cruise around the desert, looking for ghost towns. You’d be amazed at what remains, often not the things you’s think would stand the test of time. We found an old, out of print book published in the forties that was excellent, giving detailed directions and little known facts about mines and small towns from the gold and silver rush era. This complemented the Sunset Magazine set of books on the subject, which tended to concentrate on the better known places.
