My hosts from the first visit took those shots with their cameras and I still don't have copies... :( I'm dealing with different folks here this trip, and it looks like they can get all my pictures cleared, from this and my first trip, in reasonably short order. :)
Seeing what is left there now, it is hard to believe the mill that once stood there!

Here is one of my shots there:

Nice shot! I've seen a few by Guy Starbuck that also show the vegetation in bloom. What time of year was this taken? I've been there mid-November and late December, everything was dry and rather devoid of color by comparison...

It was taken at the end of September a number of years ago.

Wanted to share this with you folks. I've posted about my two trips inside China Lake. Well, my research into my grandfather, John Carricart has taken me a lot further than I ever thought. I'm giving a talk at UNR's Center for Basque Studies in a little over a week, and at Maturango in mid-October. Co-authors, Victor Herrero and Kish LaPierre, main topic is John.

We're doing a power point presentation, and for this, I got several of my pictures from both trips cleared. Couple at Millspaugh and Junction Ranch, and a few from Coso Hot Springs. Only vintage photos I've seen of Coso are my family's photos and a few Frasher's post cards from the 30's.
So here they are, for your enjoyment:

Great journey you have taken on, you really should be proud of yourself. I bet your grandfather is.
