Calico Ghost Town 2
Calico Ghost Town 2 – King Mountain, California, USA
Calico Ghost Town is situated about 130 miles from downtown Los Angeles off the I-15 going towards Las Vegas, just past Barstow. Established in 1881 on the side of King Mountain as a silver mining town, it was a ghost town by 1904. Many of the original structures still stand today and others have been rebuilt to original specs. I would recommend not going in June like I did. The temperature the day I went was somewhere between 110-115 degrees which my Samoyed, Icy Bear did not appreciate at all! Winter would be the much preferred time of year.
