A Visit to the Ghost Town Calico

Last week we headed to Vegas to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and on our way back to Los Angeles we decided to stop of and check out this little ghost town.  I had fun taking pictures and just fell in love with the little slumped shack… I think it will be appearing in one of my paintings soon.  … Oh, and we had a great time on our trip!  The last time we were in Vegas was about 18 years ago and I was about 6 months pregnant.  We did a lot of walking and sight seeing… WOW, what a big change.  🙂

Wagon seat, I just love the texture and faded color of the old wood.

My niece had her baby early morning on the day we left to drive home.  I wonder how many babies the DOC delivered before this became a ghost town.

Loved the shape of this tree. It was situated in the middle of town.

I just walked around a corner and these were leaning against the wall by the jail. I just loved the composition and the shadows.

  1. I can’t pass up an old building (unless it’s on private property). These are great shots! I’m surprised people have left it standing and haven’t carted stuff off. A neighbor near us had a fantastic old outhouse with wisteria growing all over it, and I oohed and aahed over it every spring. Finally one year I took my camera in the car and remembered to take a couple shots. That winter it fell down. I was SO glad I’d taken the time to get the photos!
