Don't publish just yet, I seem to be loosing my hair and my pinky toes are glowing!! There may be side effects... But I have discovered that tossing in a couple of old used batteries from a Garmin GPS seems to counter these effects. Will keep you posted.

With this update you get several new ghost towns. Cerrillos, Madrid, Golden, San Miguel all in New Mexico and a Fort on the Santa Fe Trail. THANKS to all of you that have signed my guest book and left comments. Many of you have direct connections to some of the Ghost Towns on the site. Always nice to see that people appreciate their history. I have begun posting some of those comments on the pages.

I seriously doubt that it's possible to get even the most hardcore 4WD rig into Chinese Camp anymore. A bunch of us from Hawthorne made a few 4WD trips in and they were pretty much all day evolutions with lots of winching. That was pre-1980 so I can only imagine what the trail looks like today.

In case any of you care !!!

You might want to look up the TV schedule for this:Science Channel (Discovery)
Geologic Journey
The Rockies
TV-G (http://javascript<b></b>: void(null);), CC

See how the Rocky Mountains were formed and how people fought to carve out a living in the mountain townships and the vast prairies beyond.

This is one of the documentaries I worked on last year. I was the advisor for locations and filming sites in Colorado.

It was fun watching the Canadian Geologist looking for gold.

I also updated my site as I was back in my office for three weeks recently.

Added comments to many pages from readers that sent in stories about their ancestors, where they lived and worked. Here is an example - http://www.rockymountainprofiles.com/Summitville%20Colorado.htm

Like RockCrusher said, very tuff getting in there. I would not even attempt with a rock crawling rig. I have failed with a quad and a Rokon, but will be making another attempt through a creek bed on my next trip. we plan on taking quads in as far as possible, then continueing on foot. Unfortunately this is the wrong time of the season to be walking back in there because of the high concentration of rattlesnakes. I think we will wait till late sept. early oct.

I guess it depends on what you call the actual site of Chinese Camp. I met Drifter going into the area a few years ago, and had a couple of pretty bad spots to negotiate in the Jeep, but made it quite a ways back in there. :eek: Come on Drifter! are a few rattlers going to stop you from maaking the trip?;)

Hey Pat,
I don't mind a few rattlers, but last year I traveled the hill above the Homestead Mine (where you had made it in your Jeep). and I was running over them in bunches! Because they strike at heat, they tend to get a bit confused when a quad rolls over them, but can you imagine getting stuck or worse, having to walk out! No Thanks! I will do battle with one, or even two rattlers, but not in herds!

A question. What is that town you've photographed and put on your sites front page?

I have to admit that it has been the topic of many beautiful photos and wonderful history... mainly because the state has saved it by making it a park, but my heart is in locating places that would otherwise be lost and telling their stories. Happy Ghost Towning!

Well, my wife is not offended, but she's p****d, Mike. "Oh no, not more ghost towns!"
I think she sees LA/NYC as a fading hope!


"California Pass Colorado
Can you find the person standing on the peak. He rode up to the summit on his motorcycle. Came across from Telluride. Nice guy. Of course I say that about almost anyone that offers to by me a drink and talk about ghost towns"


You get me to the top of California Pass and I'll buy you all the drinks you want AND talk ghost towns till the sun comes up.
I could be speaking out of turn, but I doubt there's any concern about you posting these great links - they are all part of keeping the GT spirit alive.

THANKS to all of you that have visited my web site. I appreciate the visits.
I had originally planed to update the site with photos from my recent visits to Ghost towns in Alaska and the Yukon. That has to wait. I got an urgent request for some help in gathering information for a great little town in Colorado. Don’t panic there are still plenty of updates.
A Mineral Group from Lake George is doing a study of the history of the Alma area to help the historical society. They will present their findings at The Socorro NM Mineral Symposium and in Alma. They need your help. Anyone connected with Alma, Park City, Montgomery, Buckskin Joe, and that general area around Alma Colorado is being asked to help by sending via email your stories, your photos, and your experiences from personal history or general knowledge. It would be nice if you copied me so I could add them to my site but it is not necessary. You can also volunteer for an oral history.
I hope we flood them with information. Let’s help them gather some great historical data. Send them an email.
forlorrie_h@yahoo.com (http://us.mc367.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=forlorrie_h@yahoo.com)
DO IT NOW as time is short. It will be presented in September.
If you are curious about what type of information, see their good work here http://www.parkcoarchives.org (http://www.parkcoarchives.org/)

The bad news is you will have to wait a little while for the next installment of “ Tales From the Past” titled, “How to Scare a Bear” as told to me over a beer in Ouray Colorado.
The good news is while I was gone I got numerous contributions from great visitors to the site and those comments are included. You will have to scroll to the bottom of the page to read new comments. Just click the links.

Lake Valley: Where is the lake?

The lake at Lake Valley is located approximately 3 miles north of the current townsite. The last resident, Pedro "Pete" Martinez and his wife (for the life of me I cannot think of her name at the moment), left Lake Valley in 1994, relocated to Deming, NM, some 40 miles southwest and he died in 1997. He was buried in the Mountain View cemetery in Deming.

My screen name LV Caretaker means Lake Valley Caretaker, as I lived in the town from April 2007-April 2009.

Thanks for the comments. I appreciate them. I was a little nervous about this site before I got to it. I was not expecting to find as much standing as I saw. It was a pleasant surprise. This site on the web has a brief history but what I found most interesting was the stories posted on the site. Especially the one about Sadie Orchard. http://www.vivanewmexico.com/ghosts/lvtour/history.html Glad I made the trip to Lake Valley. Spent several hours there and enjoyed every minute.

Both my husband and I think Lake Valley is a ghosttown jewel. We've had a few visitors compare the buildings and townsite to Bodie. I've never been to Bodie, yet from what I've seen and read of Bodie, that is indeed a high honor.

Thanks for the link from Viva NM. I had forgotten about that link. It helped to remind me of Savina Martinez's name too. ;)

It has been years since I have been to the forum. I got a notice from someone today that my site was not working. I decided to check it out. He was correct. Any of the old links to my site in the forum go no where. It did not take long for me to realize it was due to the fact I was forced to reconstruct my site using newer technology. So in case any of you are interested you can try some of these links out from a recent update.

First and foremost – THANKS to all the viewers , contributors and followers of the web site. I appreciate your support and I especially appreciate all the good stories, photos and information you have provided for the site.

As numerous changes to the site have been made you may want to refresh pages sometimes to get the latest data. I also have the guest book working again so feel free to participate. My mailing lists got destroyed in my recent PC crash so if I sent you a duplicate let me know. Or if I sent it to you and you no longer want updates please let me know. Lastly, if you were expecting a response from me and did not get it the reason is probably because I lost emails as well. Sorry, just please resend.

A few new adds to tales from the (http://www.rockymountainprofiles.com/tales%20from%20the%20past.html) past – The mean Grandpa builds a hill (http://www.rockymountainprofiles.com/Mean%20grandpa%20builds%20a%20hill.html) or perhaps my question about extortion.

Sunday March 6th 2016 --- Gleeson (http://www.rockymountainprofiles.com/Gleeson%20AZ.html) & Pearce (http://www.rockymountainprofiles.com/Pearce%20AZ.html) jails are NOW OPEN --- I thought you might want to put it on the pages on your wonderful site. They are both planning on being open the first Saturday of every month. I was just there this past Saturday & they were indeed open. Here is a link to information.
