on my road trip in USA I drove from Zion to Las Vegas…on the way I came across the Ol wild west Abandoned town of Calico!
Very hot! and very old but beautiful to visit and spot the stunning scenery 😉
Calico in Southern California is the ghost of an Old West mining town that boomed in the 1880s, and went bust only 12 years later when the price of silver plummeted. At its height, this town in the Mojave Desert had 3,500 residents, over 500 silver mines, and produced over $20 million in silver. That’s well over half a billion dollars in today’s dollars.
