What are abandoned spaces or places found in the desert, Alex? Including Satan’s Den, The Silver Queen Mine, random homesteads/cabins and other places in the Mojave Desert and along Highway 14 & 395.

Satan's Den @ The Silver Queen Mine - Creepy abandoned dwelling...and no I don't think the blood is real because there is an active mine next door that patrols the area and if this was real it would've been found by them and taken away as evidence long ago (or not?).

 Good to know Lil MAMA appreciates abandoned places just as much as I do, although she broke the first rule of exploration: "take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints".

The old Pittsburgh Plate Glass facility, which mined minerals from Owens Lake, has been abandoned for decades, slowly decaying on the lake's western shore. Although the factory may be abandoned it appears someone lives onsite in the old administrative building. No exploring for me:(

Fifteen years after the film showed triumphant residents winning a $333-million settlement with Pacific Gas & Electric Co. for contaminating its water — and nearly 20 years after the settlement itself — Hinkley is emptying out, and those who stay still struggle to find resolution.

Today there's little left in Hinkley beyond some scattered homes and acres of alfalfa and other grasses, planted to help clean the contamination.
