  1. I came across this article about Ryan, California, located in Death Valley. I wasn't aware that this site was currently involved in a little controversy. For those who don't want to read the article, here is a synopsis.   Ryan California is a well preserved ghost town located in Death Valley. It has been privately owned by a company called Rio Tinto for many years and was going to be donated to the Death Valley National Park. At the last minute, they changed their mind and decided to donate it to the Death Valley Conservancy. This has upset many people who feel it should have went to the Death Valley National Park.   I honestly don't see the problem here, the private owners donated the land to those they felt would protect it best. I don't understand why anyone thinks that Death Valley National Park should have the authority to control the area, nor do I think that government should control much of anything. I don't see any of this authority for the federal government outlined in the Constitution.   Anyway, what do you think?

  4. Anyone been to Calico California? Have any more recent photos? Here are some photos from years ago:    
  5. I found this story to be interesting as it's related to an old ghost town that had someone who restored it and is currently returning it back to it's old glory. For those who can't or don't want to watch the video, the entire town was bought buy a retired geologist, restored, and uses renewable energy for the entire town. In addition, the town now provide free wifi for all residents.   Video and more
  6. One ghost town I have always wanted to visit is Panamint City. Has anyone been out there lately? Anything left of the old ghost town? 
  7. Has anyone seen this new book out called Randsburg: The Mojave Desert's Liveliest Ghost Town? They have it for sale on Amazon.com and the author registered here today. Looks interesting. Check it out here on Amazon.com
  8. The Calico Ghost Town will receive a much needed facelift along with new restrooms and a shower at the campground. Visitors can also expect to see improvements to the Lucy Bell Lane house and the Calico Mining Museum. Read more here
  9. I wouldn't really classify this as a "real" ghost town since it's a park, but there are some nice photos and Shasta town history here. Worth a look.
