Cleator is For Lovers...

Yes...there is a Cleator Arizona.

Who knew?

Cleator is a ghost town with the original name of Turkey, somewhere between Bumblebee and Crown King, on an old, but surprisingly well maintained winding mountain road. Pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but stealthily inhabited.

We decided maybe it was for lovers?


Or for people who wanted to live off the grid...and still maintain their Dish Network:


Or a graveyard for old Airstreams, as we counted at least two in the immediate vicinity:


I wish I could have taken more shots, but there was a rather medium sized young red yappy dog that was interested in keeping Rich and I in line. The person on the porch yelled at the dog.

"Red dog?! Knock it off!!"

ah. Red dog.

Well then.

We also went to Bumblebee:


Bumblebee is also a cute little place close to the main highway. Lots of ranches and pretty scenery...

Falling down buildings...

All sorts of ghost town goodies.
