I’ve written about this place before–an empty road that cuts across the Smoke Creek and Black Rock deserts. Once there were towns here. Settlements in the early 1900s, even a resort where people came from San Francisco to visit. Purser. Spoonville. Amedee. And before that, this valley has been inhabited for thousands of years by nomadic tribes who followed the food supply.
It gets hot here in the summer, but this was taken about a week ago, in winter. It was cold and rainy, but the clouds parted for about 20 minutes just after dawn and I took this picture. Those are the Skedaddle Mountains behind. I love that name.
