I am currently on a leisurely trip through the Western U. S.(one of the perks of being retired), hence my absence. One of the ongoing projects on this trip is adding to my "Forgotten/Lost America" photo series. I have sporadic internet service, so I will post as I am able to. Please excuse me if I do not respond immediately, I will get on track as access permits.
This great old gas station is in the vicinity of the infamous “Area 51”, hence the cute alien graffiti.
More to come shortly.

    So, if we don't hear from you in a timely way, we shouldn't assume that you were the victim of an alien abduction. LOL!
    Enjoy your travels.

    Thank you very much. Fear not, I have resumed my travels with no alien incidents!

    Hey Mikie I already had my name on list too :-) He lives in a place of solitude and amazing sites . But it has a few to many critters for me like big snakes that will swallow you <grin>

    Is this the gas station in Yermo, Ca? I have photographed this years ago. Can't believe it's still standing. It was located next to the California Agriculture Check Point.

    This photo was taken in Nevada on Highway 95 as it runs along Nellis and Edwards Air Force Test Sites. I do not remember the exact location as it all looks the same out there.
    Thank you for the love.

    Sorry I missed this when it first came out! I can imagine this in it's heyday...

    Yermo is off the 15, but great picture anyway. Guess most abandoned gas stations look the same after a while.

    Are you also trying to tell me this this was in Yermo???
  16. zguy2112 zguy2112, 5 years ago
    I'm not saying it is in Yermo, BUT This looks exactly like the abandoned gas station in Yermo, California that I have photographed many years ago when there was a little more to the structure (Not much more though) I remember there were rail road tracks in the far distance, as I framed a moving freight train into one of the photos. But like I said, I think all abandoned gas stations look the same after many years of decay. LOL. Still love this location, nice find!

    Thank you very much.
    Trust me on this, it is not in Yermo.
