    Default My 2017 Nevada/Mojave ghost towns and mines trip

    Here's a "trailer" showing a few highlights from my 2017 camping trip to Nevada and the Mojave desert, part of my ongoing quest to photographically document old mines, mining camps, ghost towns and other abandoned or historic places. (I've been doing this for 30 years now!) This year I had a new tool at my disposal, the Mavic Pro camera drone.


    I still have a lot more video from this trip, so I'll be posting more as time allows. It takes time to edit this stuff, and I also have plenty of still photos to go through too. Be sure to check out my website to see more pics and info about ghost towns, mines, etc: www.raydunakin.com

    Please let me know what you think of this video. Any constructive criticism would be especially appreciated.

    That is some cool aerial photography Ray. I always look forward to your annual report. You always pack in lots of information and sites that I haven't known about previously.

    Ray;

    I enjoyed your annual trip report. The history and descriptions are quite informative. I especially enjoyed your drone videos this year. They give a whole extra dimension to the text report. The views around the mills are my favorite. You really get a sense of the lay of the land and you can peek inside some of the structures that may be inaccessible to enter. I sometimes wonder how they ever got some of those locations built. And, I always enjoy the scenery wherever you travel in Nevada and California.
