    Default Ghost town, USA


    This is listed as a ‘ghost town’ in Arizona; its called Chloride and is way off the main highway. It was obviously named after the mineral that was mined there. People still live there, but when we arrived around 5.00 in the late afternoon it seemed pretty deserted and there was the sensation of being watched.



    A number of the properties had some of the strangest decorations on the fences, anything from bones to rusted metal objects and glass bottle necks. One of the fences even had strings of old boots and shoes.













    But take a look at the Bank.

    Wow, that is so bizarre and wonderful. The fences and trees remind me of the 'prayer trees' that are found near sacred sites in Britain with ribbons and other things tied to the branches. What a great place! Love the old petrol station too...very 'Edward Hopper'.
