Randsburg California, or Rand Mining District as it is also known, is considered to be the "Living Ghost Town". Holding on to the very brink of existence, this small mining community is located in the Northern Mojave. Outdoor recreation booms here: ATV, dirt bikes, 4x4s, motorcyclists. RVers & car clubs are welcomed. Weekends can be busy with tourists, local horsemen & desert dirt boys, but on week days you'll have the place to yourself. An old fashioned soda fountain at the general store & a real old west saloon, hours vary with season. The Joint is the local bar, which closes early (for city standards). Olga has run this place most of her life... stop in & say "hi Olga, totalescape.com sent me". Randsburg is a great place for interesting desert photography too!
