It summed it up well on one of the signs ... “Oz”.

Yup, the old General Store is gone. I assume that the old reservation/check-in building will be taken out sometime in the future as well. It was weird to walk up to the perimeter of the old Furnace Creek Ranch and see only dirt where the saloon, restaurant, and store once stood.

We drove by there last week and I was really surprised to see the store and all the familiar things gone. Big changes for sure.

I heard from someone last time we were at the park that they are redoing everything...... we'll see what happens.
