Getting ready to start our hike. That's Old Dale Road in Pinto Basin, Joshua Tree National Park. We are about 10 miles from paved road (Pinto Basin Road).
Came across this old gate, really and truly in the middle of nowhere! The fence doesn't extend on either side of the gate, so it serves no purpose. At one time, this was probably the road to the well and mining operations.
My brother-in-law checking out an old stove...
... and having some fun with an old car door!
View from the well. Although I think the original well dates back pre-1948, this chunk of cement is probably a more recent improvement.
Lot's of "stuff" left behind at this site, so a super-interesting place to explore. Along with the well and mining operations, there was a house (only the foundation is left now).
My sister with the giant funnel!!
One of the few vehicles (or vehicle parts) that didn't get pushed into the wash by heavy rain. That's my sister on the right, with her friend Karmen.
View out the rear window of the little truck.
|My brother-in-law... photo converted to b&w, then added grain to give it a vintage film look.|
|Does this qualify for Good Fences? More of a gate than a fence, but nice and rustic!|
|Editing included adding grain and a texture.|
|I think this is a "line drawing" edit in photoshop. A little strange, but I kinda like it!|
Heading home! Now lets see if we can find where we parked the Jeeps!!
