Very recently my family moved to what seems to be the mecca of abandoned places in California.. the high desert. Within an hour's drive of my homestead is an abandoned federal prison plus a block of military housing (~30 homes) adjacent to the prison site, a 90% abandoned community (Trona), various mining ghost towns (Atolia, Randsburg, Garlock, Ballarat, etc) and then an uncountable amount of abandoned homes scattered across the desert only a couple miles apart.

Literally right up the street from me there are about a dozen abandoned homes and shacks that I will definitely be exploring. Today my husband and I managed to scout two places before it got too hot. Wintertime, in the high desert? Nope.. doesn't exist!

The first shack.. please excuse the ugly red timestamp.. I forgot I had that feature on D:

Oh you fancy huh... knockoff Louis Vutton? lol

Amid the rubble, a cattle dog pup was found. Just kidding.. ;)

Bottles of transmission fluid and motor oil.. all were full.

The second site had this weird semi-building and then a house..

A house with a chain-link fence at one point..

And once had a decent shade-tree in the front yard..


Gratuitous puppy pic! This is Kylie, btw.

Absolutely hideous wallpaper :p

A nest!! I almost missed this one til my husband pointed it out

Depressing little room

More hideous decor.. gotta love it

The only graffiti, really. Nice thing about the high desert.. gangstas don't travel out this far ;)

A beautiful view

Hair dye!

That's all for now :)
