Desert Fun

Some nice pictures of the very nice scenery on my recent Mojave desert trip

Characteristic red rocks with a covering of prehistoric lava 

Reminds me of the 1960s movie "Planet of the Apes"

An abandoned mining operation with some foundations and Tamarisk trees perhaps planted by a miner
A storage room chiseled out of solid rock near the mining operation.  The powder magazine perhaps?


The view from yet another abandoned mine higher up in the hills 

Someones hopes and dreams at one time

I wonder if anything of value was ever found here?

The Grouch inside the mine

At least the miner had a great view from his cabin
