My planned camp did not workout due to a recent flood in the canyon where I had hoped to stay. Too bad, because it was a gorgeous location. So, it was down the road toward my next adventure.
Along the way, on the far western edge of New Mexico, was another ghost town. It was just off of the highway, making a quick stop in order to see Steins an easy choice.
Another short lived mining town that actually had some remaining original buildings standing. Unfortunately, they were all behind a tall chain-link fence with signs posted stating “Dangerous Chemicals”.
Perhaps the old fumigation trucks parked nearby were a clue. Oh well, it was getting late and beginning to rain. A cold wind was blowing with snow in the forecast. To avoid getting caught driving in the white stuff, I stopped at the first reststop after crossing into Arizona.
Camp: Overnight at Vanar Rest Stop
Scene: Buildings, ghost town, mountain
