Strange Place in the Mojave [photo essay]

In the middle of the Mojave desert in the region which I refer to as Calvada there are many strange dilapidated and abandoned mining towns and camps. In high school we used to explore them. These small places can be very spooky. The small isolated towns, reduced to ruble are what I can only image as monuments to failure in the vast desert.Boom Towns gone as fast as they came. No doubt gambling for a better life hoping to hit the jackpot as most do in this desert. They stand in shambles in an unforgiving environment.
