delivery truck

little devil

boat (in dry dock)

clothes melting into the dirt

nuts or snake eggs?

a partial welcome

The wood sign with no words.

The partial glove giving the appearance there is a body buried under the rubble.

Signs of Life

Throughout the mess, we saw signs that life once existed in this desolate place.  Scattered among the rubble were toys, furniture, and small items once used by a person or family.  Now, they are just memories.

Bedroom Furniture

The Yellow Pages

Wagon and Blanket

Outdoor bathroom (tub is missing, it was there 2 years ago).

Mattress, broken wall boards, and shutters.

A child's doll.

VHS movie (Harry Potter)

No more school.

Color among the dullness.

Time to go.....

Difference in Time

It is amazing how much this place changes over time.  I did  a post on the swing set, now I will post photos I took while standing in the same location, but in different years.  The "trailer park" has endured many changes in three years.

Through the Walls

We are never disappointed when we visit the "trailer park" near Mobile, AZ.  There seems to be less and less of the lone standing trailer.  You can see the mountains behind the area through the trailer.  One of these days we expect this trailer will finally fall like the others before it.

Where Have The Children Gone?

 What a difference over two years makes.  Sharon and I headed out to Painted Rock to take photos of the petroglyphs.  Along the way are a couple of places we wrote about in our Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition) book.  The first place was the abandoned trailer park where the child's swing set once stood.  Now, it is in pieces and scattered around the area.  It is sad to see this, but the area is located in an open range where the winds are not forgiving.  The harsh desert weather has raised havoc on this place.  I will have a few posts on what I found along with the lone trailer shell which is still standing.

No More Business

This sweet abandoned place was found in Superior, AZ.  I don't know how we missed it the other times we were in this small mining town, but I am glad we came across it this time.  It looks like it probably was some type of business.  Whatever it was, it now sits empty and boarded up like many other places in Superior.
