    Calico Ghosttown

    August 28, 2017 in the United States

    Nachdem wir am Morgen Los Angeles verlassen haben, führte uns unser Weg über den I15 direkt vorbei an der alten Goldgräber-Stadt Calico. Diese war in 19 Jhdt. eine der bekanntesten Silberminen im Westen der USA. Die verlassene Stadt ist nun nur noch ein Touristenziel. Die alten Gebäude sind im typischen Westerstil renoviert.Read more

    Calico ghost town

    April 12 in the United States

    Calico was a silver mining town that only existed between 1881 and 1896 for fifteen years. The town was left to decay, and it did almost completely disappear, but it was rebuilt (supposedly with historical accuracy) to its original look. Well, it probably didn't have gifts shops, and dog treat shops back then, but otherwise let's say its accurate. We were waved in by the lady sitting in the front booth without paying, I'm not sure if we got lucky, or it is always free. It was really really windy here too, for example in front of the saloon they had some rocking chairs on the porch, and all of them were moving on their own from the wind. We could go and walk around a few hundred meters of the original mines, the little train that also goes around in the mines was not operating unfortunately. It was a bit kitschy, and I didn't know before going that it will all just be a reproduction, and nothing original, but it was still a fun stop.Read more

    Calico Ghost Town

    June 6, 2016 in the United States

    40 Grad im Schatten - der reine Wahnsinn. Wir hatten keine Wahl, als uns diese Mischung aus Geisterstadt und touristisch hübsch aufbereiteter Rekonstruktion mehr oder weniger im Schnelldurchlauf anzusehen...

    Calico Ghost Town

    May 22, 2015 in the United States

    Eine Geisterstadt in der Mojave-Wüste. Ende 1800 errichtet wegen des Silberbergbaus. Calico ist nur eine der vielen Geisterstädte die es hier gibt. Die Mienen sind zum Teil noch erhalten - ebenso das Leben. Alles ist gut dargestellt. Man fühlt sich hier definitiv in eine andere - frühere Zeit versetzt.Read more
