|This is the old pueblo, it was built as a tourist trap, as was most if not all of the building here.|
|I believe this is the original entrance to the zoo...|
|Part of the old Route 66 alignment, you can drive down part of the alignment right up to the Mountain Lion building, after that I would not recommend it, and only go that far if you are in a high clearance vehicle!|
|The main 'Kamp" building, this is one of the newer tries at the site...|
|A more recent Gas station..|
|This was the caretakers trailer up until a few years ago, the site is now open, though there may be a no trespassing sign around, I did not go to far because of the boys, and recommend obeying all laws!|
As you can see most of the pictures are from far away, this site is somewhere around 300 acres, everywhere you looked there were falling down stone buildings, and that was from the interstate, I would give just about anything to get back there and have the time to wander, there is just so much to see. To finish off I want to leave you with a few links, the first ones are to the history of the site, which is long and fascinating, there was an Indian massacre way back, as well as more recent murders in the not so distant past, they say the place is cursed... The last is to a site that has better pictures as well as some pictures from back when this place was booming...
I hope you guys enjoy learning about this site as much as I have, it has been on my 'must see' list for a few years now, and while I get to cross it off, it has been added to the 'must return' list instead, I am not sure which is better!
