Tortilla Flats

Abandoned Mine

Tortilla Flats is up in the desert hills east of Mesa, AZ.  What’s left of an abandoned old mining town is a bar and gift shop.

This scene looks like a half-baked set from a spaghetti western.  The rails are held in place by bent over 16d nails, the new ties aren’t even ties, not a speck of creosote, and lettering is waaay too neat for an ole miner.  The rocks were the only thing authentic.

Besides all of the false fronts, I thought it was picture worthy.

Thought for the Day:  These are not the nice, sweet little people you think.  You’re living in a world of make believe.                                                                   Donald Trump
