    Yea, verily.

    I'm glad it's still set up so I can find David's and Don's photos and trip notes from yesteryear.

    I forgot that I'd already read this years ago. I was about to post a question if the Tomboy Road were a good road from Telluride to Ouray using a Subaru Forester. Now that I've reread this, I'd say...

    I don't know how many Jewish ghost towners there are in these parts, but I imagine most are Ashkenazy. Welcome!

    Does anyone know about Dinahville, CA?

    Hey, fellow ghost-arinos. Long time, no see.

    I'm planning a trip in May through Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico, and part of the trip will take me along I-70 and CO 119. Besides Central City, are...

    Sutro, NV

    I've read posts from 2008 and 2009 that say the Sutro Tunnel is on private property and not open for public access.

    How close can you get to the tunnel before the "private property" signs show up?...

    It was encouraging to see former gas, grub, and motel sites reopened for business. Roys in Amboy was closed when I was last there in 1995, but it's open again, also.
