    I'm headed out this weekend to add between 4 and 6 more towns, plus pictures. Looking forward to it! Planning on a three day trip so will be gone Monday also.

    Several years ago, my wife and I toured a bunch of Oregon's ghost towns as our anniversary time off. We had a great time, and I also learned we needed to do it late in the summer, as much of what we wanted to see was snowed in in May.

    Since that time, several of the Ghost towns have had large losses of structures, of the largest losses being what's left of Susanville, where there is now almost nothing. Fortunately, photographers have made a permanent record of what used to be, because it's vanishing very fast. I applaud anyone who's trying to continue documenting our history.

    Cool project. You might add Watson. It is where the Owyhee river starts to backup into a lake. There are remains of the river Post Office and a cemetary is marked on US Quad maps just down river. I don't know any history of the place. It is a fun drive down a fairly technical 4x4 road from "The Tongue." Upriver is a Bureau of Reclamation ranch with a waterwheel (or two?) standing. See Max in the corner for scale.

    VERY NICE!!! Great job, what a lot of work!
    Drive harder, faster, safer, and keep it rubber side down.

    I updated the links on the original post. That website has been moved to it's own domain now.

    Found this Gem of a dirt road about 3-1/2 years ago, searching for the old Horse Heaven Mines. It was awesome!! Cherry Creek Ranch, just a bit East, is Spectacular...

    When are you starting the same project for Washington?
    I now have a Ghost Town map for Washington. It is extremely preliminary as I wasn't able to get out this summer to visit many spots
