Unfortunately crass vandalism and exposure to the elements has taken its toll on what little remains of these historic relics of the Mojave's mining past. The condition of the abandoned home sites I have encountered range anywhere from being nothing more than an obscure foundation to a few remnants of what once were walls, but the cabin shown below is unique in that it still has glass in the window and the front door.
In my travels in the desert I have come across dozens of sites such as this, but am careful to keep their locations to myself. This helps protect them from those who would do them harm and also contributes to the sense of discovery for others who may also stumble across them at some later time.
The name of who built and lived in this cabin remains a mystery.
The smaller images below are snapshots of other deserted cabins that I have encountered in the desert, and except for the dwelling built of stone, all are in various stages of collapse.
