    Default Blog about Ghost Towns around the Death Valley Area

    Hi guys, hope you don't consider this spamming. It's not my intention! I do a lot of traveling around to ghost towns and desert sites around the Death Valley area (DV, Tehachapi, Bullfrog Mining District, Antelope Valley). I recently started a blog about my trips.

    Please check it out at: http://www.deathvalleyjim.com

    If anyone has any recommendations for places to visit or anything please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Death Valley Jim

    Thumbs up

    Good stuff, love the Route 66 relics. The wife and I will be making our New York to Chicago (via Lincoln Highway) and Route 66 (Chicago to Santa Monica) trip later this year, or spring of 2012, depending on personal issues.

    Nice to see some of the old stuff still standing. I'll be using your pages to assist in our itinerary. Thanks for sharing!

    Jeff

    In your blog about Ludlow you stated:" We spot the old town graveyard across the tracks, and continue on looking for a road to cross the tracks. We came up empty handed so I decided to walk across the tracks to the cemetery see if I could spot how we could get across. I come up empty handed. We spend the next bit of time driving around the area to figure out how to get across…we never could find a way".

    It's easy to get to the Steadman road. Just go west of town, cross under the railroad trax (short tunnel) and turn left. That will take you to the cemetery and the Steadman road. I'm out there many times during the year. Just stay away from the railroad trax and you'll do fine.

    Thank you for that information! I will check it out next time I'm in the area.

    Wow....this has to be one of your best write-ups ever! I can see how you've spent many hours on this masterpiece....thank you!

    The Goldfield Consolidated Mines building was especially interesting, as is the remains of the railroad that served this town.
