Site Introduction

Welcome to my Photo Gallery. As of October 2019 there are more than 1,653 posts and counting, most containing multiple pictures. I estimate that there are now more than 7,500 pictures on a wide variety of subjects scattered throughout the site that have received more than 444,240 page views. Because most of the pictures shown here have been captured while hiking areas in and around Las Vegas and the surrounding areas, the site has somewhat evolved into more of a hiking journal; listing and describing the places I have visited. There are eight ways to find information on the site. [1] To locate a page on a specific place or subject by using the SEARCH THIS BLOG box located in the upper left side of the home page. One of the easiest ways to find a particular hiking location is to use one of the "TABS" located at the top of each page.

Daytrip - Inyo Mine Camp at Death Valley Park

Click to Enlarge
On 10/17/2019 Jim Herring, Bob Croke, Ron Ziance and I drove to Death Valley to look for the Inyo Mine Camp. It should be noted that the mine camp and mines are not actually within the boundary of the Death Valley National Park. After thoroughly enjoying the ride through the Echo Canyon, we spent several hours roaming around and taking pictures of the Inyo Mine Camp. Even though many of its buildings are slowly deteriorating due to the natural elements of high winds and hot temperatures, it still has much to see and explore. It is truly a ghost town and mine.
