Ghost Town Remnants - Big Bend

Ghost Town Remnants, L. Daniel, 9 x 12 - SOLD

The biggest town in the Big Bend area is Terlingua, a funky little place with a bonafide Ghost Town right in the middle! The ghost town sits on a hillside next to an old graveyard and all the old adobe houses are in various stages of dilapidation. This one was particularly interesting with the sunlight coming through the roof. I really wonder about the people who used to live in these homes and what their life in the desert was like.

Here I am all bundled up, painting inside another ruin to stay warm... it was so windy and cold that day.

Thanks for sharing.
