My son Bill's passion is to explore abandoned mines; gold, silver, copper, etc. There are thousands of abandoned mines here out west. He has explored the area around Randsburg on a number of occasions and wanted to take us to this ghost town and show us a few of the nearby mines he has explored.
At the museum in town.
Even though it was Saturday, most of the shops were closed. This sign in the window just cracked me up.
A flower pot :)
I need one (or two) of these bottle trees.
After leaving town, we headed to one of the mines he has explored. This is a head frame and the entrance is directly below.
We walked around and I found some real treasures . . . lol. Coming back to Ohio will be an old section of bed springs and some broken bottle fragments. For grandson Jake lots of rocks, mostly different types of quartz and a piece of obsidian. He will love them.
Heading down the road we found some abandoned miners' cabins. They had been totally trashed and covered in graffiti.
Graffiti turtle. I guess we could call this a "make do" . . . lol.
So happy my son shared this with us. Tonight I had to say goodbye to him :( It is so hard but I am so proud of the man he has become.
These orchids are in the hotel lobby. I had to touch them to see if they were real, and yes, they are.
Tomorrow morning we are heading north to Cotati, CA, to spend a few days with Fritz's son and daughter-in-law. Thanks so much for following me on our journey.
Thanks also for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
