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?). – Hwy 14
Wasteland Indeed @ The Silver Queen Mine. – Hwy 14
A ghost store near the Silver Queen Mine. – Hwy 14

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:( – Hwy 395

Found this beauty in between Mojave and Ridgecrest.
It comes with amazing views.
Of course you would probably have to deal with some lead and asbestos issues…
…and a new roof…
…but at least the landscaping around the house is nice.
I do love that color of green.
It looks like there may also be some structural issues…
…like missing walls and windows…
…but its got good bones…
…its just gonna take someone who cares enough to put them all back together again.
Bonus: There is either a basement or mine underneath it but I was unable to confirm which one since a large section of the house has collapsed over the opening.
Down and out in Hinkley, CA.
You know, the town the movie, “Erin Brockovich,” made famous?
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 slowly becoming a ghost town, 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.
