Although sad, I like the pics.

Did you buy the property? And what are you gonna do with it? Is that the town of Rice? I haven't been by there in a while but I know it was for sale.

It's pretty looking, but I'm still dying to hear the whole story. Is that like the old set of little house on the prarie or what?

...dying to hear the whole story...

The gas station was shot during the first day of chasing the Big Boy locomotive out near Yermo back in October of last year. The others were shot yesterday along the southern edge of Lucerne Dry Lake off the 247.

On the way out, I noticed the dry grass made the locale not so easily identifiable as the desert, so, with no real intent and some time to kill, I stopped on the way back and photographed a few abandoned buildings within walking distance of the 247.

As I was processing the images, I realized there are more and more of these abandoned properties springing up. Is the American Dream collapsing? Why do people walk away? Why does an abandoned structure deteriorate so quickly around here? You go to a place like Bodie and everything is still standing, much of it in good condition, despite the whole town being abandoned a century ago.

Sadly, I feel we see in these pictures the future of rural Southern California.

i own homestead acres near desert center, handed down over 4 generations. Those dilapidated structures are quite common as are shells of abandoned cars and other debris... all slowly returning to dust.

Being born and bread true desert rat (China Lake Navel Weapons Center), we made many many trips between there and VictorVille/Lancaster areas and these places have always been part of the scenery. As a kid I always wondered what the story was and how someone's home could just be allowed to turn to dust. After working here in the mountains for the last 30+ years I more understand how it can happen but again, I always think about the back story of how it came to be. There are a number of abandoned properties that one would think would make a wonderful place to live if the place was 'fixed' up. OK, demolishded . and one would have privacy and protection from the craziness. But only if one can stand the constant winds, dust and the furnace from hell heat. Wonder wonder wonder.

I am a part time owner who has an interest in Big Bear by paying property taxes and spending my money UTH when I'm there. I would love to be in Big Bear right now. However If doing my part is to not go UTH then that's what I will do. I encourage all part time owners to do there part in these uncertain times to do the same. Once circumstances allow I'll be one of the first to go UTH to enjoy what I've been missing. I would hope that federal, state and local governments would jointly do their part in keeping folks off and around the hill especially with the coming storms and snows.

San Diego Sheriff Gore said being nice is over and done! Yesterday from 5 PM on they cited and fined many a person who were in groups and not following the distance and group get together. Some stores here in San Diego won't let you in if you are not wearing a mask. No surfing allowed. Stay safe and away from those Covidiots.

WoW! Just heard this on the news— On Friday, the county’s Public Health Officer of South Lake Tahoe issued a no-travel order “to reduce the number of visitors and other non-fulltime residents.” The order to stop all non-essential travel will remain in place until.
