    Default Cochise County Ghost Ranch

    I was driving down a dirt road with a barbed wire fence along the right of way. I noticed an opening with a cable and lock across it. The road beyond didn't look like it was traveled on for decades, so as iron to a magnet I park and start walking. After about a mile, my rewards were great, as I came upon this beauty.

    The only signs of other visitors are, of course, los illeagales. I had to clean up after them for interior shots.

    I have never seen a windmill so close to a dwelling. Much as I like windmills, I would think the metallic sounds would be adverse to a good nights rest.

    This ranch, off high Lonesome Rd., is just a few miles east of Bisbee, in the Sulpher Springs Valley.

    The door is covered by the tail fin of the windmill.

    Here's a shout out to my Cuz, SD, in Washington St.

    Adobe walls, old school lath and plaster interiors. I guess the 1920's.

    The only thing missing are old rusting trucks.

    One of the rooms had what was left of a urinal attached to the wall, I guess I left out the photo of it.
