Goldfield Ghost Town

Posted by on February 24, 2010


Erin arrived at the Phoenix airport and it was a joyous event to see our youngest. By the time we had dinner and unpacked her, the evening was at an end. The morning sun beckoned us to the pool the next morning and we spent the day lying in the sun and alternating between the pool and the jacuzzi. I’m not going to taunt you with photos of this as most of you are steeping in a freeze, laboring through another snowstorm, or just wondering what the hell is going on this winter with the drastic changes. I’ll leave that for another day. However, our weather had changed a bit as well. The next morning found us with not only gloomy skies but intermittent rain putting a damper on plans of any pool visits. So we drove to the east side of Phoenix to Apache Junction and headed a short way up route 88. It was just a short jaunt to the Goldfield Ghostown, a mining town of yesteryear that has been preserved to a degree for posterity’s sake. We picked the right day as they were having a chili cook-off and this went hand in glove with the cool weather we faced. I was in somewhat of an artsy-fartsy kind of mood so my lens captured that aspect in an array of black and white. I just shot what moved me at the moment. I hope you enjoy the show.

    Hey Larry–
    First time on your website–enjoying your “voyage” . Matt Howard put me on to your page.
    On a sad note- Talked to Matt Howard today and he told me about Jim Miller passing away yesterday.
    Matt Howard told me he was going to contact you about this but just in case I am also. Jim supposedly had a heart attack at a concert in Pgh. Thursday.
    Jim was a good man–my loyalist during my short term as Supt. We kept in contact often.
    Hope all is well w/ you, Robin and family.

    Regards,

    Ed
