Wow, that is a stark scene. I wonder what that building used to be? I looked up Keeler, and read that there are only like 66 people who live there.
Yes, it’s a semi-ghost town at this point. It faded after the mines closed and Owens Lake dried up. It provides for some very stark images like this one.
This reminds me of moving here in 1969 when highway 99 went through downtown Modesto. Times long gone.
Thank you for hosting the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
Why do I hear OLD TOWN ROAD in my small head?
Great divisions – mountains; trees; car.
And this is semiotic in action.
The 66 people in Keeler.
Thanks for letting us know about the mines and Owens Lake.
There is a town on the west coast of Tasmania like this – Queenstown – and I remember Mount Lyell and its legacy very well.
The way the bitumen has been applied on the road – I also got some strong olfactory qualia.
Interesting wall! But then – mountains always look good in the background:)
Sorry I didn’t respond back last week, because your profile did not give your url… a happy Wednesday”)
Been to Keeler. It’s kind of a sad place next to dried up Owens Lake. Thanks L.A.
That’s the perfect place for a murder mystery! 🙂 Is that Russian thistle?
Bleak and intriguing. Nice one..
