I visited a ghost town, Oatman, AZ. Well, it claims to be a ghost town. There are an awful lot of people living and working there for a ghost town. It is more like an old west town.
Donkeys included. lol
I traveled on Rt. 66 to and from Oatman.
Through the Mohave Desert there are miles and miles of these roadside mounds. I think they are some sort of sand or water control.
Hundreds of people have marked them with names and such in rocks. I think it’s like desert graffiti. Coleslaw Kid went to a little extra effort and painted his rocks in some kind of sparkly paint before spelling out his tag name.
I also made a quick visit to Joshua Tree National Park. I hiked out into the desert for about a mile and watched the sunset. I didn’t want to go too far, there wasn’t a real trail. I made sure I could still hear people and road traffic, so I couldn’t get lost.
