This spring, I took an impromptu trip to Death Valley. I saw these towns just hanging on like Argus. Abandoned buildings without roofs, downwind of a chemical extraction plant feeding off the salts of a dry lake bed. I saw houses stripped of everything of value...siding, copper wire, etc. with a bleached landscape as a backdrop.

Around 29 Palms {near Joshuas Tree} there are a bunch of abandoned homesteads in the high-desert. Although increasingly vandalized, some still are time capsules representing unsustainable settlement.
