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.
