    Default In Search of Santa Cruz Mountains Ghost Town Photos

    Hi,

    I'm going to be running a story on a blog (www.santacruzlife.com) about the history of the ghost towns in the Santa Cruz mountains. I'm wondering if anyone here has a great photo that they would allow me to post with the story. I'm looking for an authentic photo of Alma, Patchen, Lexington, Holy City or any of the nearby ghost towns. It can be vintage or current day. If you have an image that you think would work well then please let me know. Thank you!

    There are a couple of must read books for Santa Cruz mtn. history. If you don't have them here's links;http://www.amazon.com/Ghost-towns-Sa...cruz+mountains & this too; This site screws up all my post formats here so I hope this makes sense. No it won't post right but the other book is titled Highway 17. Both very good & have pics.

    I never found a great photo (I decided against running one from one of the books mentioned), but the post is now live. If anyone wants to check it out you can read it here: http://santacruzlife.com/santa-cruz-ghost-towns/
