Tired of the Heat

To help you cool off from the heat of summer, I've decided to add some winter photos to my websites. This photo was taken in 2007 on my first visit to Comet. I was completely unprepared for what I found there...it was the biggest ghost town I had seen. I was like a kid in a candy store running all over to take as many photos as I could before dark. As you can see, it was snowing quite hard when I took this picture.

I have been back to Comet many times and I still find new photos to take. Sadly, the town is deteriorating due to theft, vandalism, cows, carelessness of those who visit, and age. I have photographed many items that have been stolen in just the past five years. Please remember, if you visit ghost towns, most of them are privately owned. The items you may find there do not belong to you. They belong to the people who own the property. I am always excited to find a ghost town that still has buildings and, even better, personal property. I take my photos and leave everything as I found it for the next person to "discover".

In addition to the link I posted below, this automobile has been posted to my web pages here at Fine Art America in the Ghost Town gallery where you can check out some of my other "finds".
