Shoshone

Before heading off to Death Valley, Jay and I visited a site just out of the town of Shoshone, California. Shoshone is great. I love it. This is the Historical District of Shoshone:

These dwellings are from the early-ish 1900s, cut into the rock, and were occupied by minors and vagabonds, including some wild west big names which have since escaped me.

The site was not too unscenic:

The goal was to upgrade the site with newer equipment, but it turned out the telemetry wouldn't work, so we just gave the site some fresh batteries and headed back to town for lunch and a stroll through the local museum.

There was also a chocolate-filled crepe involved, after lunch. Mmmmmmm.

Hi Beth, Very nice site, you’re a great photographer. Any interest in getting together next time you’re around Seattle? Clue/Warning: We’ve only met once, I’m a musician and not a scientist (some say there is a connection), and our Mothers are good friends. Happy Holidays, M.
