When I looked up, I saw that Treky had us rolling down a dirt (sandy dust) road. I didn't ask where we are going, I just decided to wait and see what adventure Treky had in store for us.
The further we traveled, the rougher the landscape looked.
Finally, a sign. Lake Valley??? - I don't think a lake would survive in this desert.
An old deserted building. - Note the mail box???
A little explanation - A ghost town.
Tippy thinks that there may be spooks in there. I don't know about spooks but probably snakes are there. Either way we are not going inside.
What is not falling down is over grown.
A bunk house??
The hotel and saloon
A hundred years ago, hundreds of people lived here searching for silver and gold.
This is the museum
Lake Valley Silver Boom Town
Readable portion of plaque
Can you imagine a blanket of silver 20 feet thick?
This is what our ghost town looked like over 100 years ago.
Same view today
Treky is a good van - he has taken us to so many exciting places. Look at the road that he has traveled on.
A little info.
Next we will look around our campsite in New Mexico.
Ron, Tippy and Treky
