This is the main street of Khirbat Tannur in Jordan. Probably deserted since centuries. Pretty cool to ride on a road over a 1000 years old.

In Guffey, not the oldest or the coolest I have ever seen but it was cool enough to get me to stop and take a picture.

Darwin still has an active population, maybe 50 or so. It's not quite a ghost town yet. There's a sculptor / sculptress there who makes some pretty nice stuff.

We were last there in high season.... They were preparing to have a dance in the "Darwin Dance Hall"



And inside the dance hall




The Sculpture Shop

Wow.. how increditly Cold War. Ominious looking. Was there a mountain or ridge on the other side to receive the signal or something? Looks like the remains of a transmitter building at the foot of the structure. Cool find!
